  • The State Final of the Australian Brain Bee Challenge is scheduled for June 23rd, and we congratulate those of our Year 10 Science students whose performance in Round 1, back in March, has secured them a place in this next stage of the competition

And in other news

Appeals

  • The Parents & Friends is also on the look out for members of the College Community who may like to help the team of parents coordinating the Quiz Night, either in its planning stages, on the night, or in the sourcing of prize donations.  For more information, please see inside this week's Bulletin
  • This year's Fete will see a number of stalls farewelling their convenors as several of their daughters reach year 12.  The College is calling on volunteers to, in turn, step up and fill the gap as the baton passes on to another group of generous parents.  Please see inside this week's Bulletin for more details and feel free to, without obligation, attend next week's Fete Committe Meeting if you would like to learn more

  • The 2017 Fete Committee will convene on Wednesday 7th June at 7:30pm (with a supper of pizza available from 7pm).  This is a good opportunity for parents to find out more about each of the stalls and get more involved in one of the College's biggest fundraising events
