It’s Family Fluro Fun Run Week

This is on Friday, we are looking forward to a great evening at Madill’s Farm.  The run is relaxed and fun, we have a DJ, sausage sizzle, and bake sale and the soccer club rooms are open for drinks.  Registrations close tomorrow, Wednesday 24th so we can print numbers for the runners.

Every registered runner will have an entry into the spot prizes drawn on the night, including best dressed from the major sponsor Augustine!

Upcoming PTA meeting

Our next PTA meeting is on Tuesday April 13, 7pm in the staffroom.  We’re always looking for new people to get involved and coming along to a meeting is a great way to learn what is going on and what part you can play.  We also want to talk about how the PTA interacts with the wider parent community, and what you want from us.  If you’d like to see change please come along.

Save the Date, Working Bee

Please save May 16 as a day to come and help out with our Working Bee.  We’ll be planting this time as we want to get the school looking its best for the Centennial celebrations in September.

Class Coordinators

We are still looking for class coordinators for the following rooms 4,10,11,13,14,15,21 and 22.  This isn’t a time consuming role but really does contribute a lot to building relationships within the school.  Please email if you can help with one of these classes.

Don’t forget to like our PTA Facebook page to be kept up to date with what is going and when we need extra hands to make things happen.
