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

By now, students across Years 7 12 have taken home their Term One Report.  Overwhelmingly, the results represent an affirmation of the interest and the effort our students give to their studies.  They are to be heartily congratulated.  In with the report is information for parents about booking times in the early Term 2 Parent Teacher Interviews.

Project Compassion

Excitement is mounting as the competitive side of the Project Compassion appeal draws to a close. Students and staff have together devised a number of new and old ways of raising funds for a good cause everything from the traditional bake sale to the staff student netball matches.  Caritas Australia each year builds a wonderful program on its website
to connect the generosity of the giver to those who will receive their help.
