Dear Parents and Carers,

Encouragement

All parents are encouraged to be vigilant about how children get to and from school, so as to ensure safe travel.  Ongoing discussion with your child about how to avoid unwanted attention or how to respond in circumstances that appear suspicious is an important part of helping your child mature.  Be Alert not Alarmed.

Many families have completed their voluntary contributions and charges and we encourage all families to support the school in a fair and equitable manner.

Please pay outstanding charges by 30 November.

Our 20th Anniversary Fete will be held on Saturday, November 18th from 2-5pm on the school oval. This is a larger scale event open to the wider community which as you can imagine, will take a fair amount of help to make a success. There will be many stalls on the day which will need to be run by our school families. Any parents/carers who volunteer will receive ONE per family free access on the day to all the inflatables. If you are able to volunteer your time, wish to hold a stall, have a prize/raffle donation or are able to help out in any other way, please contact our fete coordinator Tara Christides on tchristides@live.com.au.

The P&C are seeking donations for the Fete.  These are as follows:
