As the 2019 Spring Fair approaches we are all getting very excited.
We had a very successful donut day that raised funds for us to start locking in some of our vendors and attractions for the fair.
On Tuesday 13th August there will be a Spring Fair meeting at 7pm in the Staffroom. Everyone is welcome and as you would know the more hands the better for these busy events.
We are seeking as much assistance as we can gather from our parent community and any time (feedback or expertise) you can offer is greatly appreciated!
We have several more donation days and fundraisers coming up so keep an eye out in the regular newsletter updates and the blog.
Bring on the Spring !
Thank you to all of our parent volunteers, staff and community members for an amazingly successful Spring Fair.
Listening to the buzz of the children today, they all had a fabulous time enjoying everything the day had to offer.
We appreciate the way our community supports an event that is so important to our school identity.
It was a wonderful display of community, culture, and relationships in our school.
