P & C DISCO:

On Friday evening, 16th October, our Undercover Area reverberated with a disco beat and pulsing lighting as students went into party mode. It was great to see disco divas and rappers, showing their fitness and dancing skills as they rocked to music and games of DJ David.

Thank you to everyone who supported the disco.

SCHOOL BANKING UPDATE:

Please place all money on one side of the wallet and the tokens on the other. It really helps us to place wandering wallets in the correct class bag if your child’s class number is clearly visible. Stickers can be replaced every year when your child’s class changes. Please ensure all details are written in the deposit book. We waste lots of time filling in slips! If you have requested a reward and it doesn’t arrive after a fortnight it may be because your child has not made enough deposits to claim the reward or the item requested is no longer available or you ordered a Term 4 prize in Term 2.

Please write a note to us and we will endeavour to reply. We regret to inform you that the flying snake tails and mud splat balls are now removed from the portal as demand was very high. Term 3 rewards will be available soon as well as the remaining Term 1, Term 2 rewards. Some 2015 rewards are still available. Check out the school banking website for details. Lastly, welcome to all our new school bankers and to those of you who have returned. Your support towards our P&C projects by simply banking each week is greatly appreciated.

Kind regards, Banking Coordinators

Quiz Night:

Thank you to everyone who attended the Quiz Night on Saturday Night. A great night was had by all with lots of great prizes given away and raffles won. Urgent whispers and hushing were frequently heard as tables debated their answers to some quite tricky questions. The mini table quizzes had many scratching their heads as their tried to answer riddles, match flags to countries and unscramble celebrity names, among other mind benders. The evening raised a total of $1,800.89. Thank you to P&C members and parents who helped to make this night a success.
