Parent Association

Parent Association

Last Saturday evening the gym was filled with festive decorations from all over the world for the PAL Winter Olympics Trivia Night.  Over 200 parents, staff and friends came together to test their brains for a fun-filled night. A big thankyou to Mal Foubister who organised the night and we would also like to thank Abby and Phillip Hartshorne and Peter Bentley who helped set up the gym.

The night was a huge success and thanks again to the Earl, Hudson-Calleja, Zalm, Creek and Bentley  families and various businesses that donated prizes on the night. It was great to see so many parents dress up according to the theme and get into the Olympic spirit.   

If you have any questions about PAL please contact us via email  – we would love to hear from you!

With Term 2 drawing to a close, we wish everyone a safe and happy mid-year break and look forward to Term 3.

When:  10 – 12 August 2018
Where:  Southern Highlands

Time to change the ‘pencilled in’ diary note to the bold black ink  entry as we are off to the Southern Highlands!

Let us paint the picture of how this lovely weekend will look like for you:

 Open fires, mulled wine, hot chocolate…and that’s just the beginning. Casual drinks and dinner Friday night followed  by a sleep-in Saturday (I’m in already!) Then wander through Bowral and the surrounding areas to enjoy the local markets, antique and homewares stores with perhaps  with a nicely brewed coffee in hand.  After a leisurely morning, we will come together for a country pub lunch in nearby Burrawang.  By late afternoon you might want to curl up in front of a fire with a good book for an hour or two or sneak in a nap at your chosen accommodation venue before enjoying a delicious  three-course dinner.

 After all that activity, a sleep-in is definitely in order again on Sunday (do we have to go back home?). Then there’s the option of a casual brunch/lunch for those interested  at a local vineyard before we farewell the Southern Highlands to meander back to Sydney to the real world…until next time.

Next steps:

 We need to confirm numbers now to lock in our various venues.  If you are definitely joining us – and we hope you are – please use the link below to register your commitment and pay a $50.00 holding deposit that will be deducted from the overall expenses for the weekend.
