EASTER RAFFLE
Have a look at just one of our  Easter Raffle prizes! Last week, students from all classes across the school brought home tickets to sell for the Pre-Primary Easter Raffle fundraiser on behalf of the P&C. Each student will have 5 tickets, prices  are as follows:  1 ticket = $2, 3 tickets = $5.  Prizes includes one large Easter hamper and 3-4 smaller hampers (depends on number of donations received).

Ticket stubs (with name and contact info of purchaser) and cash collected should be returned to the front office in the envelope provided by Thursday 11th April. Winners will be drawn and announced on Friday 12th April at the last school assembly for Term 1.
If anyone has any questions, please contact your class reps. Thank you for your support of the Pre-Primary Easter Raffle!

ANZAC Day Service
Our ANZAC Day Service will be on 11th April at 10.50am.
We would like to ask all students to kindly bring in flowers from their garden to make the wreaths on the day.  All flowers can be dropped off at the instrumental room before school.  Parent volunteers would be greatly appreciated to help make the wreaths.  Thank you. Joanne Dixon
