We will hold our first disco for the 2018 school year, in the quadrangle, on Friday 1st June. $6 will cover student entry, a sausage on bread and a drink. Additional drinks, sausages and packets of chips will be available for sale for $2 each. The theme is “Country” so have your cowboy hats at the ready! Our P and F will be serving drinks and nibblies for the grownups in the downstairs Tuckshop area while the children are at the disco. Staff supervision will be provided in the quadrangle area. Please note that students will not be permitted in any other area of the school, including the Tuckshop area. Thank you for supporting our Year Six students’ camp fundraising efforts.
