Looking for a new Walking Bus Co-ordinator
Huge thanks go to Kirsten for resurrecting our walking school bus programme and making it the success it is today. Kirsten has implemented new systems and her hard work has made it super easy for her successor to take over! Thanks Kirsten for your dedication over the last two years.
The co-ordination of the walking school bus rosters can be done remotely and doesn’t need to take too much of your time. If you’re interested in becoming our new walking school bus co-ordinator, please contact Lynda email@example.com

** SAVE THE DATE – 23 AUGUST – OUR ANNUAL WORKING BEE **
In preparation for our 100 year celebrations next year, thanks to our green thumbed parents Lizzie, Caroline (CC), Anna and Lizzie’s mum-in-law, the lovely Hueline, (you may remember Hueline as the brains behind re-establishing our Cowley garden area two years ago) have got together and created a fantastic gardening plan to ensure our school outdoor areas look amazing for our 2021 centennial celebrations.
But to make this happen we need lots of parent help. Please diary Sunday 23 August for our gardening working bee – more details to follow.
