The senior students, our Year 7 & 8's are desperately raising money to support their EOTC programs.   We are asking that our school community helps to support them.  If the seniors are able to raise $500 there will be a lunchtime ceremony to shave off the 'beard', belonging to Mr Barrow!  If they are able to raise $600 some lucky students will get to pull the wax strips off his legs.  You can help us out by pledging or donating some money to get a ticket to 'operation shave' and have the chance to be involved in the shave!  Senior students will be coming around the classes in the mornings to collect any donations that you are able to make. Thank you.
Skateboards and scooters. We are allowing skateboards and scooters to be used during breaks in a designated area of the school. Students should ensure they wear a helmet.
