Parent Association

Term 3 is coming to a close and this week is very special for our Year 12 students and parents as they complete the rituals of graduation week.  We wish them all the very best for their upcoming exams.  It may be a ‘time to say goodbye’, but  it is also the beginning of a new and exciting phase of life, full of wonderful opportunities and life-long learning. 

This time next year  will we be ready to board the ‘sizzler’ ride,  try our luck on the chocolate wheel, taste some delicious food and enjoy a fun-filled community day with our family and friends. All this  plus more at our biennial Spring Fair! We are looking for parents who can join our committee and bring new ideas to make our fair even more successful. It’s a great way to get involved and make new friends.

Please contact me to get involved in PAL,   or if you have any questions, please   contact us via email  – we would love to hear from you!

As this is the last newsletter for the term we wish everyone a happy and safe holiday.
