Congratulations to Stefan and Susie – winners of the Christmas and Dog hamper raffles. Thanks to everyone who bought a ticket.  It has been a tough year for fundraising and we really appreciate your support.

Thank you to all the parents and caregivers who helped out on the BBQ and food stall on Athletics Day. It’s a team effort and we can only undertake these activities with your continuing support.
