Mission to Morocco - One Week to go. . . 

The Mission to Morocco Fundraiser is well underway! The children have been making huge efforts to clock up their kilometres and round up sponsorship along the way. Funds raised will be used to update the old laptops and other equipment used by the children in school so please support the fundraising in any way you can : )

We will be collecting all funds raised and having a small breakfast party for the children in the yard after they run their final laps on March 29th!!

Help Needed!!!

We need lots of parents to help on the morning Friday 29th!!! The whole school will be going to Linear Park first thing that morning with their teachers to do their final laps. That's a lot of children so we need some parents to accompany the teachers over and help out. We'd also welcome parents to help with setting up a small party for the children in the yard afterwards - and to help collect the funds when the children come to school that morning.

Please contact Rachel/Oscar at or your class rep if you can help - let us know if you'd prefer to help with the laps in the park or the breakfast party in the yard!

Many thanks to all for your support!
