COMMUNITY NEWS & EVENTS
FOOTY DAY - FRIDAY 22nd SEPTEMBER – COME ALONG AND JOIN IN THE PARADE 9.15 am
The long awaited Footy Day is almost upon us. It promises to be a day full of fun and games. For many of our students this is a real highlight of the year. Students may wear their favourite team colours for a gold coin donation and have the option of ordering a Hot Dog for lunch. We use funds raised on this day to continue our support of needy students overseas, via St Vincent de Paul, who would not otherwise receive an education. Our donation will be matched with a student from one of the partner countries where St Vincent de Paul operate. The program includes students at all levels – from primary, secondary and post-secondary. Scholarships are allocated across the countries to ensure fair distribution. The fun begins at 9.15am when we will assemble in the hall for the parade of teams. Parents are welcome to join us. Hot Dog orders are due back Friday 15th September.
