Leadership is a challenge and a wonderful opportunity for the leadership group of Yr 6. Some students have nominated as a candidate for leader of their house – Mort, Concanon and McCauley. These students will deliver their speeches on Tuesday 10th February at 1:45pm. All parents, grandparents and friends are invited to come along and be inspired by these future leaders.

PARENTS & FRIENDS ASSOCIATION
The P&F is a very friendly and inclusive group who fundraise to benefit all students at the school. There are many ways that parents can become involved, such as attending the monthly P&F meeting, helping at working bees, tuckshop volunteers etc. It is a great avenue to get to know and socialize with other parents and staff. The first P&F Meeting for 2015 is on Tuesday, February 10 at 6pm in the school Library. All welcome.

VOLUNTEERS
Volunteers are wonderful assets to our school community. We would like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to all our wonderful volunteers and encourage many more to join in. There are too many to mention individually, but you know who you all are!! However we do need more tuckshop helpers, clothing shop and classroom helpers. Volunteers need to be inducted for their own safety and to comply with school procedures. There will be a ‘Volunteers Induction’ on Tuesday February 10 in the school library commencing at 9am. Everyone is encouraged to attend.
