Library Redevelopment Fundraising

What an amazing night the school fair was! Thank you to the PTA, who worked incredibly hard to make the fair such a success, and to all the parents who contributed their time in preparing the food, helping with stalls and the bar, setting up, cleaning up and generally supporting the fundraising efforts. It was a genuine community effort, with everyone working together for the benefit of the children. We are grateful that the funds can be put to good use towards the school library redevelopment project.
