Sausage Sizzle

They helped bbq and delivered around 630 sausages and burgers to the staff and students’ classrooms. Huge thank you to all of them! This event successfully raised $4980 and we could not have done it without the help and support of everyone involved including the teachers and the EAs who assisted in the collection of payments.

School Back Packs

Due to quality issues, the school back packs will be sold at the greatly reduced price of $100 per bag from Monday, 4th June. The PTA apologises for the quality issues experienced with these bags.  Unfortunately, we were not able to reach agreement with the supplier to resolve the issues by replacing the pocket zips and now have a stock of bags that we cannot sell at retail price. If you purchase a bag for $100 please be aware that the PTA cannot offer any exchanges or refunds.

For everyone who bought a bag at the original price, we are offering a back pack free of charge on or before 1st June. Please note, this offer expires on Friday, 1st June.

There will be an AGM in September wherein an election will take place. If anyone is interested in undertaking the role as the Chairperson, please let the PTA know.
