From the Parents & Friends
Dear Parents & Caregivers,
Next week (Tuesday 10 March) we start the donation drive at both schools for the Family Fun Fair. It’s a perfect time to do an autumn clean and donate items for the Fair.
Items to please donate include:
- Books and Toys
- White Elephant items (aka Bric-a-Brac)
- Secondhand uniforms
- Soft drinks (6 x 375ml cans only – no large bottles)
- Bottles of wine for the Wine Wall
- Items for the Silent Auction
- Return of SOLD raffle tickets
We are also looking for volunteers for the Fair, so if you are able to assist by volunteering even for 30 minutes during the day, it would be greatly appreciated. Please email us at email@example.com with your details.
The Mother’s Day long table lunch is being held on Friday 8 May 2020 at the Junior School with special guest speakers Tory Shepherd (The Advertiser’s State Editor and senior columnist), Sarah Sutter (CEO Nature Play SA) and Natasha Morgan (CEO, My Home Watch). Tickets will be on sale shortly but are strictly limited and all proceeds will be donated to the Junior School STEAM and Gymnasium Development.

Meet the Committee of 2020 - Week 5:
Committee Member Name: Grace Eliseo
Role: Junior School Parent Rep Coordinator
Children: Elijah - Year 4; Estelle - Reception
Grace joined the P&F in late 2018 and has taken up the exciting role of the Junior School Class Rep Coordinator and is currently in her second year embracing the role and inviting new and existing parents to participate in school and class events.
Grace’s background is in International Business and International Relations and she can speak 4 languages which lead to her love for culture diversity and love for various cuisines and events that celebrate multiculturalism. Grace loves networking and meeting new faces and she enjoys bringing people together. She has pursued further studies in Marketing and Public Relations and has worked with many local and international brands from various industries including fashion, food and beauty. One of her favourite things to do is volunteering with an organisation that teaches beauty techniques to people with cancer to help them manage the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment. Grace’s motto in life is a quote by her favourite author Khalil Gibran: “In friendship we raise hands together to find what one cannot reach alone”.
