As we come to the end of Term 3 and look forward to spending time with our families over the school break, we reflect on the term. Of course, the fete has been a highlight! The time and effort put into bringing an event like the fete together can not be understated. It takes great commitment from our whole community to make these events happen in such a spectacular way. We would like to thank the Fete Committee (Marie, Jess, Alice, Alicia, Tammy & Kylie) for your organisation and co-ordination of this wonderful community event. I am sure you will all agree it was a fantastic theme! Our P & F Committee for your consistent support of our school and all the behind the scenes work that happens, not only for the Fete, but all year round. Our Cake Stall convenor, Maria, for continuing the tradition of our world class peach blossoms. Our Cent Sale master, Marie, who managed to organise a whopping 100 prizes and keep track of all the tickets and winners. Our longest serving P & F member, Nancy Marsilio, who sold so many extra raffle tickets for us. Our staff for their dedication to choreographing and costuming the rock’n’roll dances. Our students (who are the real stars) as they presented and performed just like professionals. Our parents and grandparents who volunteered their time to convene or assist on the stalls and events, helped to set up and pack up, made donations and sold raffle tickets. Our businesses, local and afar, who donated such generous prizes. Our local community who came along to support us on the night. (Check out our Facebook page for some great photos).
As usual the term has been jam packed, we have been involved in Athletics, Rugby, Science Day, Book Week, Year 5 and 6 Camps and NAIDOC activities, as well as all our usual learning!
Term 4 looks just as exciting – Year 4 will go on their camp in the first week of term and our Water Safety Program will begin, culminating with the Swimming Carnival in Week 8, just to mention a few.
