Monday 3rd November
At this stage pet day is still on. The weather is due to clear later this morning. We will make a call about the stalls , it may be that we run them after lunch rather than after morning tea.

Family Picnic, Pets and Recycled Pets, 5 - 8pm.  Come to school at 5pm for the family picnic, those of you that have ordered dinner from school, this will happen as usual and the orders will be transferred to Monday.
    The ring and pet judging will begin at 6pm.

A huge thank you to those that helped water and care for the plants during the school holidays.  The plants are looking great, surviving strong winds, rain, hail and frost!!  Another huge thanks to the Thursday session helpers, not too many tomatoes to go!!    Still love to have more people on Thursdays so please come and help.  We have weekly planting  sessions from now on.  These sessions will be on Thursdays from 9am onwards and we are located behind the large brick wall/recycling shed at the end of the netball courts.
