Volunteers are also needed on Friday 16th June for preparation and serving. Sign Up links for this event will be posted next week.

Friday 23rd June Pizza Lunch

An opportunity to order Pizza for lunch on the last day of Term 2.

This is a fundraiser for State Schools Relief, an organisation that provides assistance with school costs, for students facing financial hardship.

Pizza Order notices will be sent out in Week 8.

Windowsills or Green Thumbs needed

Do you have space on your windowsill for 5 seedlings in small pots?

Do you or your extended family enjoy growing plants from seeds?

The GPA is planning a plant stall to accompany the Referendum Vote BBQ (anticipated late October/November) and we need volunteers to care for the seedlings in the months beforehand.

We are also taking donations of “windowsill sized” pots. Sign Up link coming soon. 

Friday Icy Poles/Hot chocolates

Icy poles or a cup of hot chocolate are available Friday lunchtimes during Term 2 and continue to be very popular.

If you haven’t signed up for the term, your child can still participate by bringing $1 on the day.

Remember, BYO mug for a bonus marshmallow. 

Friday cake raffle 

Remember to get your ticket(s) each Friday! Tickets are $1 from the office.

Thanks to the bakers. Can’t have a cake raffle without the cake!
