Samaritan’s Purse
A continued thank you to those who have contributed with cash and gifts for the Operation Christmas Child boxes. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to support children living in poverty throughout the world. If you would still like to contribute, please send in items by next Friday 20 September.

Fagan Park Excursion
We’re looking forward to our Fagan Park Excursion Friday next week, exploring the Chinese Gardens and other gardens in the park. We will be enjoying lunch together at the park that will include sausage sandwiches, spring rolls and fried rice. There will also be an opportunity for the students to fly the kites that they will making in class during next week. Students can wear their sports uniform for this excursion and bring their own morning tea including a drink or waterbottle.

McCrindle Survey
As per the email sent today, we thank you to all those families who have completed the School stakeholder survey for 2019, run by McCrindle Research.
We value your involvement in our School community & are looking forward to receiving your responses to help to inform future planning into next year.
As such, if you have not yet had an opportunity to complete the survey, please take 10-15 minutes over the next few days to convey your thoughts as we value your voice. Please note that your responses are completely confidential.

The first camp note will go home today and it is a questionnaire format so we can get a valuable insight into how your child may be able to attend this camp and get the most from it. Further notes regarding the program will be sent home before the end of Term.
