(6 WEEKS TO GO).

Dear Parents,

Raf@le

Thank  you  to  all  who  attended  the   Parent  Information  Morning,   supported  the  tombola  appeal  and   have  made  offers  of  help  so  far.  We  had   a  great  response.  There  is  real   enthusiasm  building  and  we  are  very   grateful  for  all  your  support.  We  really   do  believe  that  this  year’s  fair  can  be   the  most  successful  yet. Traders  are  now  signing  up  and  the   entertainment  schedule  has  been   @inalised.  We  are  delighted  to   announce  that  a  professional  jazz  band   will  be  performing  during  the  day.   There  will  be  a  number  of  sets  during   the  morning  and  afternoon,  and  the   music  will  add  to  the  wonderful   atmosphere  on  fair  day.

There  has  been  great  support  from  our   community  and  local  businesses  for   our  raf@le.  This  year  we  have  some   fantastic  prizes  and  books  will  soon  be   sent  home  with  students.  The  prizes   include  a  Macbook  Pro,  a  two  night   stay  at  the  Novotel  Hotel  and  a  Venture   photography  package,  along  with  many   other  great  offerings.  We  will  be   offering  an  incentive  prize  of   Disneyland  tickets  to  the  student  from   Nursery-­Year  2  who  sells  the  most   tickets,  and  a  party  for  the  class  from   Year  3-­6  which  sells  the  most.  Last  year   the  raf@le  proceeds  were  over  $80,000   and  we  are  hoping  to  top  that  this  year.   We  really  appreciate  your  support  and   all  the  money  will  go  to  school  projects.

T-­SHIRT  COMPETITION There  was  a  great  response  from   students  to  our  design  a  t-­shirt   competition,  and  the  lunchtime   drawing  tables  were  a  big  success.  We   had  many  creative  and  colourful   designs  and  it  was  a  very  dif@icult  task   to  select  an  overall  winner.  We  are   delighted  to  announce  that  Valerie   Chu  of  Year  6  is  the  winner  and  her   design  will  be  printed  on  t-­shirts  that   students  can  wear  at  the  fair.  These   will  be  printed  in  our  house  colours   so  that  students  will  be  able  to  wear   them  again  at  house  related  events   including  sports  days.  Well  done   Valerie  and  our  thanks  to  all  the   students  who  entered.  All  the   competition  entries  will  be  displayed   in  the  playground  this  week.
