Woolworths Fresh Food tour
The students had a great time participating in the Woolworths tour on Thursday. They were shown around the various sections of the store including the bakery, the back storage areas and the walk in refrigerated room. After tasting a variety of fruits and vegetables, they were given the opportunity to purchase an item or items for morning tea. Our time in the park was enjoyable with a number of different activities available for the students to enjoy. We will post some photos on our website next week.

Earn & Learn
Thank you for all the Earn & Learn stickers you have been sending in. We have had a great response even though many stores have now run out. The promotion finishes on 25 June and so far we have over 12,000 stickers which will enable us to receive some useful resources for the students. Once we have the final amount we will let you know what we have been able to purchase.

Cameron and Nathaniel ran at the Combined Independent Schools Cross Country Championships on Thursday and both of them did well and will progress to the All Schools championship next month. Next week they will both be representing the school at the Hills Zone Athletics Carnival. 
Next Wednesday is the Multi Sports Day in Croydon which all students and staff are attending. Thank you for returning your permission slips.
