PTA News

We are fast approaching our biggest fundraising event of the year, the School Fair on Saturday 4th of November. Please be aware the title has been changed to (SOS) ‘Save our Seas”. Tara Delaney, Vice Chairperson of the PTA is the leading coordinator for this event, so please contact the PTA team if you have donations, ideas, or time you can give to make this event a successful one. Your class contacts will inform you about the individual activities your child’s class has been allocated.

School Fair Donations

Please keep bringing in your good quality second hand books, toys and games, bric-a-brac and clothes  so we can sell them at the fair for ‘White Elephant’. We are in need of Ocean themed costumes for the Photo Booth as well. You can drop your donations at the PTA office by the end of October.
