Music Extravaganza next Wed 7pm

Next Wednesday we are holding our celebration fundraiser at the Burnham Camp Community Hall, starting at 7pm. It is free for children and $5 per adult.

Please bring a plate to share for supper if you are able to.

Performers need to come at 6.30 to get set up.

Portfolios Come Home Today

Please celebrate the great progress your child has made in sharing the portfolios. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your class teacher to make a time to chat.

PTA Reminders

All money for chocolate sales is due back to the office next Wednesday, October 5th. Louise will be collecting this just after 9.30am. All chocolates not sold must be returned - but we'd prefer the cash ;-)

Parents of children who do not return either the money or chocolates will receive a reminder note on the Wednesday.

As put out last week, if you've experienced any problems with this fundraiser, please contact us at: and Louise will respond. 

We have sold approximately $1300 worth of chocolates so far. This money is going towards outside PE & play equipment for all children.

Next PTA meeting is Tuesday 25th October @ 6.30pm in the staffroom.

Thank you for your support.
