Scholastic Book Fair

Thanks for supporting our book fair. We had a great turn out last night with nearly 40 parents and that many students coming for bed time stories and a nice, hot chocolate and marshmellow. We even had one of our Dads read the Cat in the Hat - thanks Karl! 

Thank you to Trish, Dot, Pam, Sandra, Michelle, Bridget and others who helped with the smooth running of the evening. Last night we made more than $650 worth of sales - a percentage goes back to the school.

Senior Book Sharing & Positive Puberty tonight @ 6.30pm
Feel free to come early to have kai before our Senior Book Sharing evening for students, whilst parents get to learn about our Positive Puberty seminar, led by Family Planning. We may film this for those who can't be there and place this on the school youtube account - let us know if you'd like this.

LSVs helping around school this Sunday afternoon
This Sunday we have 30 or so Limited Service Volunteers helping with a range of tasks around school. Shane Wooten, one of our Dads, is supervising them.

If you have a long garden hose, edging tool, spade, broom or hedge trimmers to loan us we'd appreciate it. All items will be labelled and returned to you.

Snow Photo Competition
This competition will be opened up for voting soon. If you have photos but have not submitted send it to: giving it a good subject line (that will become the title of the photo online).

At the end of this week the album will 'close off' and voting begins next week. Photos submitted so far are below.

  • Sausage Sizzle this Friday - bring $1.50 per sausage to the office prior to school.
  • Coes Ford Friday 9th Sept - please remember to get your child's permission slip in to the office asap. Also if you can help please contact
