Gala Day Success!

Gala Day Success!

Last Friday was a great community day and from our smallest children right through to the Seniors in Year 12, students took a day from their lessons to run stalls with delicious foods, to dress up in thematic colours, to perform on stage and to enjoy the talent as a receptive audience. Judging from the number of food stalls which ran out we can be hopeful of realizing a good sum for the charities which will benefit from our funds.

This Week

  • Gala Day! - see inside for full, colourful, coverage
  • Celebrating Mothers - there are some lovely tributes from our Primary students
  • Italy / Art Study Tour - read the full report!
  • Year 9 Science - visit the Botanic Gardens as part of a study on Ecology
  • Year 11 Legal Studies - visit the Adelaide Magistrates Court
  • Brainstorm Productions present The Flipside to the Years 7-10 cohort
  • SAPSASA District Athletics - results are in
  • Parents and Friends - the Term 2 meeting is coming up on Wednesday 22 May.  Don't forget Quiz Night on Friday 31 May - get your tickets online now!
