Bike Enclosure Busy Bee:
A HUGE THANKS to all of the families, friends and community members who helped with the P&C Busy Bee over the school break in order to get our new bike enclosure area completed! It was a true collaboration of the wonderful resources in our community.

A special thanks must go to Greg Robinson, Sergio De Campo, Evan Bowey and Glenn Fowler for all of their advice and dedication to help research and plan for this project.


A BIG THANK YOU to Marco Klous and Laila Ansari of MK Building Solutions and Greg Robinson of Southern Cross Surveys (parents at our school), along with Rick Ross from Creative Concreting Solutions, who arranged for all materials and equipment hire at cost and donated a substantial amount of time, skill and labour in order to get this project done within range of our very modest budget.

I would also like to extend my gratitude to the P&C executive team, Gavin Power and the school grounds committee for their support of this project.

Nadia Bowey,
P&C Co-President 2017

Important Changes in the Canteen forTerm 4:


- Year groups will no longer be allocated (a) specific week/s to cover any gaps in the roster. The filling of the roster will fall to the parent community as a whole.


-The canteen volunteer roster will NOT be online this term. To help out, please put your name down on the paper roster outside the canteen or contact me on 0435 25 7415 or

-Our URGENT goal is to get the shifts filled now:
They are 9-11am and 11am-1.15pm Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

We know the weeks fly by this time of year and pre-planning helps things run more smoothly, so please put your name down NOW for a spot during the term. Even if your children don't order from the canteen, you can still help!

The new menu will be issued shortly, please make note of the few changes. The menu has been simplified due to low volunteer numbers and to keep stock down in the run up to the end of the year. There are still lots of fresh and delicious options to choose from. Please note Vivid ‘Water in a Box’ and Brownes choc-mint chill are no longer available from our suppliers. If you have any queries, as always feel free to contact me.

We provide a valuable service to the school community - both staff and students - and as we're run through the P&C, all contributions help your school :)Thank you again to all who volunteered last term, it is appreciated!
