Presentation and recognition days With our school numbers increasing there will be more changes this year. I wanted to give you the dates early so working parents can organise time to attend. K-2 will be held on Tuesday 9th December in our school hall and Years 3-6 will be on Wednesday 10th December in the high school hall. 2015 If you have a child starting school in 2015 please make sure enrolment forms have been returned to the office so classes can be formed. If you know your child will not be returning in 2015 as you may be moving please put this in writing at the office so classes and numbers for 2015 can be finalised. Mini Fete We are all looking forward to the mini fete in week 2 of next term. There is a raffle with amazing prizes so please support our school by selling as many tickets as possible. Encourage children to do some extra chores in the holidays to earn some pocket money to spend at the mini fete. All money raised goes towards the one laptop per child program in our school. Disney Trivia Night Do not forget to book your seat or table by Friday this week or it will be opened up to the public. There are also fantastic prizes to be won on this fun evening on Saturday 25th October in our school hall. As Term 3 comes to an end I would like to thank everyone for another amazing term of learning for our children. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. Students and staff return on Tuesday 7th of October. If you notice any security issues at the school during the holidays please call School WHAT’S ON Security on 1300880021. The Fields Flyer is full of interesting information each week.
