Coles Sports for Schools 2018

Dear Parents and Community,

It is now the fourth week of Coles Sports for Schools program. Last week 2 470 vouchers were collected. This week collection was even more impressive: 4 033 vouchers! Which makes a total of 6 503 vouchers!

Our goal is to collect 20 000 vouchers to allow Mr Bartlett (our PE teacher) to buy  equipment such as ribbons for athletics and swimming, soccer balls and diverse target challenges.

Don’t forget, the program runs from 7th February to 3rd April and everyone can be a part of it (family, friends, neighbours…). Keep collecting vouchers!

Let’s shop together to renew some of the school’s sports equipment.

Woolworths Earn & Learn 2017

The Earn and Learn Program ended on the 19th September and we have already returned all necessary information to the Earn and Learn Program Team at Woolworths.

Last year we collected 20 000 stickers. I am happy to inform you that this year we collected 30 000 stickers: 33% more than last year!  Well done everyone and thank you for supporting our school while shopping.

A special thank you to the teachers and students who helped sticking the stickers onto the sheets. I heard that after working on mathematics with the stickers, the kids really enjoyed it. They even asked for more!





Fathers’ Day Stall

The Fathers’ Day Stall was held last Thursday and proved to be a huge success. There was a wide range of items for sale and the kids were able to purchase some great gifts for their Dads. Thank you to Lisa and Cindy for your wonderful

organisation and to the Mum's who assisted in setting up and working on the stall we appreciate the time and effort you put into helping out.
