Darling Harbour
We are looking forward to our next excursion to Darling Harbour on Wednesday 5 September. Please pack a raincoat (preferred) for your child in case of showers.

Samaritans Purse Operation Christmas Child
Please refer to the note that was sent home last week or a quick google search will also provide you with information about this appeal. Each box contains a variety of items such as something to love, to wear, for school, to play with, for personal hygiene, something special or a $10 donation. If you would like to pack your own box as a family, then please contact your class teacher or myself and a shoebox and further details will be sent home. Otherwise any donation will be greatly appreciated. Please send in items by the 14th September.

School Fair – we need your help
New Hope School will be running a stall at the school fair on Saturday 22 September. Students will be painting small terracotta pots (and similar) at school and planting herbs in the pots for selling on our stall. We are looking for parent volunteers to assist during the day. If you have an hour to spare we would love to hear from you. The fair is from 10am to 3pm. If you can help at any time between 9:30 and 3.30pm please contact Lisa Philips by email  .

CSSA Athletics
Well done to Cameron and Nathaniel who participated in the CSSA State Athletics Carnival last Friday. Both boys competed very well in their events and will proceed to the next level.
