CLEANER’S CHRISTMAS HAMPER
It is a tradition at our school that parents contribute towards a Christmas Hamper for our cleaning staff as a way of conveying to them our sincere thanks for the wonderful work they do during the course of the year. It will be greatly appreciated if each learner could bring to school one or more non perishable items as a contribution.
The Grade 3s are looking for a toy sheep or lamb to use in the Christmas play. It must be large enough to be seen by the audience. If you have a suitable toy sheep that we may borrow, please contact Mrs Mochas.
The Christmas Pageant will take place on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th November.
The staff would be most grateful for the donation of these items for next year.
The AGM will take place on Wednesday 13 November at 19:00 in the school hall.
A reminder to parents that we need a quorum of at least 15% (214 parents) in order to go ahead on the 13th November 2013.
