Welcome back to  Term 3 ! We hope that you were able to spend some  relaxing time with family and friends during the term break.

Our first PAL Meeting for Term 3 is coming up  on Wednesday 1 August and we hope to see you there, everyone is welcome!  I’m also looking forward to the Southern Highlands get away. Don’t miss out, booking details are below.

Tonight many Year 10 mums and  dads will be seeing their daughters  dressed up and off to their Dinner Dance  at the Epping Club.  We hope you will have some warm memories of this special night  for  our Year 10 girls.

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

PAL Meeting

When:  Wednesday 1 August
Where: Curran Theatre
Time: 7.30 – 9.00pm


When:  10 – 12 August 
Where:  Southern Highlands

The numbers are growing and so far we have quite a few ladies looking forward to some open fires, mulled wine and hot chocolate!  However, that’s just the beginning! Casual drinks and dinner on Friday night followed  by a sleep-in on Saturday?  Wander through Bowral and the surrounding areas to enjoy the local markets, antique and homewares stores with perhaps  a nicely brewed coffee in hand?   After a leisurely morning, we will gather 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 and 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 contact us to register your commitment and pay a $50.00 holding deposit that will be deducted from the overall expenses for the weekend.  

Contact either   Louise Wytenburg  or Sue Whipps    for more details.
