Newsletter - Edition 14-2015

News from the GMA

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank the class reps and their coordinators for the work in planning year level events. The next term is looking very busy, so please make sure you mark the dates below in your diary.

I wish everyone a very safe and happy holiday and look forward to many fun events next term.

Events Held

Father’s Day Stall

As usual the looks on our little girls’ faces (Prep to Year 4) was priceless as they approached the Fathers’ Day stall to choose gifts for their dads and granddads. Thanks to Marisa DeMaria for buying the gifts and coordinating the whole stall, along with her team of lovely helpers.

Year 11 Happy Hour

Around 20 mums gathered at Bar 115 last Thursday evening at Happy Hour! Everyone had a lovely time, most staying beyond the 2 hours allocated. It was a great chance to catch up outside of work and school hours when there was more time.

Prep event at Bounce

Last Sunday the Preps met at Bounce and the girls had the most wonderful time jumping around. It was a very successful event.
