Junior Choir Rehearsal Week 2

Next Tuesday is Sports Day and Mrs Draper will not be available so Junior Choir will take place on Monday 21 October at 8.15 am instead of Tuesday for next week only.

Stockland Riverton Performance

The Junior Choir will be performing some Christmas Carols at Stockland Riverton on Saturday 7 December. A note has gone home about this so please return the slip if you are available for this performance. There will be limited space so it is fine if you are not available. We do not require every band member.

Corpus Visit

On Monday 28 October the Corpus Christi band will be visiting Orana to participate in a workshop with the Orana band and then perform a short concert for the school. Band members will need to remember their instruments on this day. Our new band members who have recently joined the band in the last few weeks do not need to bring their instruments.

ART FUNDRAISER - Greeting Cards, Calendars & More!

We are doing a fundraising campaign with Kids Card Designs. Your child has produced a fantastic piece of art, which will be sent home for you to see along with an order form. The artwork, can 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.

Artwork and order forms will go home together. Please return all orders, payments and artwork by the date outlined on the order form.

To place an order:

  • Return the order form, art and payment together to your classroom teacher

  • DO NOT fold or staple the artwork as this damages the artwork and can affect final images.

  • For families, please return all siblings artwork, orders and payments compiled together (NOT stapled) with your eldest child.

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. Thank you for your support.
