END OF YEAR CHRISTMAS CONCERT
Thank you to the many families who attended this social gathering on Friday night. It was a great chance to catch up with many of you, and I’m sure the performances by our children kept you thoroughly entertained. A special thanks to Santa, who, with the help of Mr Grice and his fire truck, popped in for a quick hello.
My thanks to the P&F Committee and their band of helpers for their assistance in running the night. I never cease to be amazed by the generosity shown by many of the parents in this school – we couldn’t do it without you! If, as parents, you are looking for a way to contribute something to the school
community, I urge you to come along to a P and F Meeting in the New Year. My thanks, once more, to
the P and F Executive Committee of 2017: Mrs Emma Singleton, Mrs Kalie Green, Mrs Tricia O’Hanlon and
Ms Anna Harding.

ST VINCENT DE PAUL CHRISTMAS APPEAL
St Joseph’s Wandal is once again called to serve the local community. St Vincent De Paul has launched their Christmas Appeal hampers.
