Dear Parents

Please take note of the following important information:

FOUNDERS’ DAY ENTERTAINMENT : 30 MAY 2015

The PTA will be running country fair games on Saturday, 30th May, 10:00 – 14:00. There will be a mechanical bull and parents are requested that should you not want your child to ride the mechanical bull that this is discussed with them beforehand.  Come along, support your school’s teams in the Derby Day and have some fun. Build and fly a paper plane and stand in line to win an aviation experience with Border Aviation Club and Flight School. Do the Egg Splat (Beckley Brothers),  Jam Jar Tombola (Crossways Pharmacy), Guess the Teacher (Cut by Rhonda), Tomato Game (Happy Veg), Squishy Pasta Worms (Buccaneers Lodge and Backpackers), Cucumber Game (Spring Veg) and Tea Cup Bounce (Tea in the Trees). You could win many prizes including vegetable hampers from Fruit & Veg City, Vincent. There will also be Broach and Flower making (Umnenga Lodge), a Lilyfontein Friendship Chain (Maclears Stationery), Jumping Castles (Glendale Trucking) and a Toddlers’ Corner (Mambos Plastic Warehouse).
The PTA is still looking for jam jars with gifts in them and any other items/vouchers that we can give as prizes.
