Co-Presidents’ Message

We know many Year 9 parents have been counting down the days and hours until the return of the  Far North Queensland travellers on Friday night.   Such a wonderful, unique experience and welcome home to all students and staff who went on this journey!

For all those who attended our annual Trivia Night last Saturday, thank-you very much for your support and we hope you thoroughly enjoyed yourselves.  A special thank-you to Paul White and Mal Foubister from our PAL Executive who led the organisation and coordination of this event for 2017.  So much work goes into these events behind the scenes and we really appreciate the role our PAL Executive play in pulling these functions together, as well as the broader parent community who are always so willing to jump in and volunteer to help.   WELL DONE!  


trivia night report, from Mr paul white:

On Saturday evening we once again held our wonderful Annual Trivia Night.  It was another  successful event, building friendships with the evening bringing together over 130 parents and friends to enjoy a fun filled, brain taxing, ‘Mad Hatter’ themed trivia.  So much thought and effort went in to everyone’s fantastic and very colourful costumes and makeup. However, on the night, the thinking definitely went into the answers and congratulations go to the winners of the ‘Drink Me’ team and the ‘Wanderers 2.0’ who were very close runners up.  Congratulations also go to the best dressed ladies and gentlemen and the best dressed team.  Looking forward to seeing you all at our 2018 Trivia Night. 


A few special events are on the horizon – see details below:
