Congratulations to the Taylor family! They have won the Car Bay Raffle for Term 4.


We are doing a fundraising campaign with Kids Card Designs. Over the next few weeks students will get to design their own works of art. The artwork will then be turned into Greeting Cards, Calendars, write on/wipe off Magnetic Fridge Planners, handy sized Diaries and useful Address/Birthday Books for you to order.
These fundraising products are unique as they will feature artwork designed by your child and will provide a lasting memento for you to give as a gift or keep for yourselves.
This is a healthy fundraising venture where kids get to use their creativity to raise funds for our school and we encourage you to get on board with your support.


Well done to all those students who competed in our 400m races and field events on Tuesday. They have set the standard for what should be an action packed, exciting and enjoyable Sports Carnival, when the entire

school will participate in sprints and team game events in Week 2, Term 4. I would like to thank all of the parent volunteers who gave up their time and braved the weather to assist on Tuesday and make the events possible
to run. Thank you for the overwhelming response from volunteers offering to assist on main Carnival day. I will be in touch with more information after the school holidays.
Thank you to everyone for assisting and supporting the PE Department in what has been a very busy Term 3. Happy Holidays - "GO FREO!"
