What a day!

Thank you to all the children and parents who came down to support the PTA Community Fair and Garage Sale. We were so lucky with the weather! It seems to have rained ever since!

The morning made over $16,000 for the school, which will go towards the sparkling transformation happening in the East Wing Roof Garden. We will get some photos for you once it's all finished!

Special thanks goes out to FAUST and STRIVE who offered us their services free of charge...

Class 1B was filled with mesmerized little faces as they listened and watched the Gruffalo performed by FAUST. Check out info on their Easter Programmes and workshops times

Will, the owner of our local Cyberport gym STRIVE, gave up his morning and held some great sessions for the kids. STRIVE are also down at Sandy Bay every Sunday and hold fantastic Youth Classes in the holidays and throughout the week.

The New Luncher

HOT LUNCH DELIVERY - Please check your orders!

Don't forget, if you have ordered a hot lunch and your child is on a school trip or at a sporting tournament, they are unlikely to be back to school in time for lunch and it is down to you to inform the New Luncher that the lunch needs to be cancelled. We are working with them as closely as we can but please remember - cancellations can can only be done directly with the New Luncher. You can contact them between 9am and 6pm on 2870 2190 or

Please feel free to feedback to them with any ideas you have to make the system more streamlined and efficient.

Lots of people enjoyed the free samples at the Community Fair on Saturday and we have on average 100 lunches being delivered daily. If you haven't done so, check out their website at

Bus procedure for CANCELLED after school activities

Rain, rain, RAIN!

If an after school activity on school premises is cancelled (for any reason), parents will normally be notified of this before 1.30pm and bus children will be expected on the school bus (unless you notify the PTA otherwise).

If an after school activity not on school premises is cancelled, you will need to notify the PTA by 2pm if you wish your child to travel home on their usual bus.

Save the Trees - receipts for uniform

May we ask that you think twice before asking for a printed paper receipt for your uniform purchases?

All transactions are itemized and saved in the system under your child's name, and so unless you have purchased an item not yet in stock, or are having items delivered to class, a printed receipt is really not necessary. Please do pass this message on to your helpers too! (if you need a print out of a receipt at anytime, please just ask).
