Give 10 and Market Report

Dear Parents

Give 10

During 2018 we had 156 families meet their 10 hours or more, school service commitment to our school community.  These hours are self-reported each year by the families working the hours they do on rosters, sports days, excursions, in the Canteen, HOPE hours, at Board meetings, in the library, in the classrooms and on Camp!  There are many ways to Give 10. 

We had 32 families who completed more than 20 hours and 15 families exceeded 50 hours or more in 2018.  This is a really great effort.  These are hours of service, that if not done, we are not too sure this work would get done at all!  So thanks everybody and well done to all of our families involved.

Your child will be bringing home a certificate in their bag for you which acknowledges this work and how much we appreciate it.  We hope to see you all next year.

Market Report

Our Year 5 team of Gardening Gurus picked the produce, set up the stall and then promptly sold everything on Wednesday morning.   Thanks to everyone’s support they collected $106.40 from the sales which has gone to buying more stock to be planted for growing during the break. 

Well done Team!

Kind regards,
