End of Year Gathering
A reminder that all families are invited and welcome to attend the annual End of Year Gathering next Wednesday 6 December 2017 in The Farrall Centre.  There are two gatherings, one at 6pm and one at 7.30pm.  

The End of Year Gathering is a time for reflection with some thoughtful performances from each campus of the School and some musical items. 
 
The Giving Tree at the End of Year Gathering  
This year the Giving Tree at the End of Year Gathering is collecting food and Christmas items for Colony 47
Colony 47 supports 25,000 Tasmanian families every year. At Christmas Colony 47 provide meals, food, gifts and hampers to isolated people and families who are doing it tough. They also provide Christmas lunch to 400 people in our Community. 
Donations of food and Christmas items would be gratefully appreciated. These items can be left in the boxes provided under the Christmas tree in the foyer of The Farrall Centre (both levels) at the End of Year Gathering. 
High School students can bring donations to their Tutor group if they wish.

 

P&F Holiday Season Cards


P&F Holiday Season card packs are now available to purchase from Morris office and Commercial Road main reception, with proceeds going towards 2018 P&F Fundraising priorities.

 

Outdoor Education
A group of Year 10 and Year 11 students will be kayaking across Lake Pedder this weekend with the hope to ascend Terminal Peak.  From this point south and west views take in the remote and wild southwest whilst the northerly aspect opens with the power of Hydro dams. Students will be leading the program and will likely be challenged by weather, terrain and timeframes.

If you would like to be involved in the organisation, planning, stall holding, donating services or products, or to simply volunteer some time at the School’s Twilight Fair, please contact the Parents & Friends Association – or complete the Online Form on the P&F web page.

A reminder from the deli team: all those deli jars that are collecting in your cupboard can be returned to either the Main office (Commercial Rd) or the Morris office to be reused for preserving delicious deli delights over summer in readiness for the 2018 school fair.
