It is not long now until our College Carnival on Saturday 26 May and it is going to be a truly special day this year as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary. Our Carnival is always a very successful event with many families contributing in so many ways. Raffle ticket books were sent home earlier this week, with the youngest student in the family. There are some amazing prizes available, including five night’s accommodation in Honolulu so don’t miss out on being in the draw. Please return sold and unsold tickets to Primary Reception by Friday 18 May.
Money raised at the College Carnival this year will go towards supporting the Performing Arts program at the senior campus and the STEM Institute at the Primary campus. This is very exciting news – let’s see how much we can generate!
Please consider how you can help and get involved to support our College and the education of your children. Please refer to the table below to see the items we need for our stalls. Bring your donations to the Primary campus and leave them with your child’s teacher or in Primary Reception.
