Dear Parents and Guardians,
We are now into our second week back and the first newsletter edition for this term. Welcome back after our holiday and Easter break. Even though it is now two weeks on from the holidays, hopefully families had some quality time together and some happy experiences. Also welcome to our new families joining us this term. Please keep yourself informed of what is happening in the school through our fortnightly newsletter and other communication channels.
We ended last term with lots of colour and fun. It was terrific to see all our students together enjoying the day at the Kingston Reserve next door. The event was a great reminder of how important it is for the children to challenge themselves and be involved in active pursuits. Thanks to the parent group, school councillors, staff and other helpers on the day. It was a novel experience for most of the children and staff and by all accounts enjoyed by all.
Donations and sponsorship has formally closed, however, there are a few families who still need to confirm their pledge and finalise their donations. This event has been a successful fundraising activity as we had hoped, raising over $16,000 in total. The P&F still need to confirm the amount after all expenses come out, which will be closer to around $11,000. As you may be aware all fundraising activities this year are being targeted towards a new front oval and a possible upgrade to the cricket and basketball areas. Thank you so much for your donations and participation in this event.
