Are YOU Ready for FETE?!?

We are almost ready to welcome everyone to our place on this Sunday 29th October as we present our FETE and Auction 2017.  This year's Fete, as always, supports our ongoing development of student facilities.  In 2017 it is supporting the $3.5 million dollar commitment to the new Year 12 Centre to be built as part of the College master plan for 2019.

Thank you to so many of you who have and are still doing your part at home and here at school to make it a day to remember.

Please use the following check list to support your generous efforts!

  • The Cake Stall CAKES would be gratefully received in the Hall on Fete day or left at school on Friday.  Please note our request on this front page for baked goods from yourself or a member of your extended family.  THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

  • Afternoon Tea Stall: If you are a parent in Years 11 or 12 then cake/scones etc. are still "the go," but your product goes to the success of the Afternoon Tea Stall.  Your kind donations can be left in the 9B classroom.

  • FETE Raffle: The success of the FETE Raffle with its excellent cash prizes is key to the overall financial result.  Please return all books by Friday.

  • Live Auction: This year's Live Auction will again be complimented by a bumper Silent Auction.  Doors open at 11am.  Be sure to follow our Facebook event page for all the latest Auction news.  Hard copies of the Live Auction Catalogue will be sent home with your eldest daughter today.

  • Entertainment: Please note that this year's Fete has a wonderful line up of Bands, Dance, and Strings at several locations during the day. (See back page)

Good Wishes to our Year 12s as they complete their formal classes on Friday in preparation for exams and the finalisation of assessment tasks.  We will pray with them and for them at their final Year level Mass on Friday morning.
