What’s coming up

There are a number of special activities and events to be held this term and information about these is outlined below. We look forward to seeing families attending these events and joining with us as we celebrate the end of the 2018 school year.

Casserole Crew
A morning tea is being held in the Primary Library at 9.30am on Friday, 9 November to thank those families who have contributed to our Casserole Crew this year and to welcome new families who would like to be involved in 2019. Families who contribute to the work of the Casserole Crew, prepare a meal every now and then, which can be given to one of our families experiencing difficult circumstances due to the loss of a loved one, or illness, for example. We find this act of kindness to be rewarding for all those who contribute and a blessing to the families who receive the meal. If you would like to be involved in the Casserole Crew in 2019 please come along to the Library on Friday and contact Mrs Pam Boardman (pboardman@sjac.qld.edu.au) who coordinates our Casserole Crew each year.
