We raised a fantastic $3,000 today for Mercy Works !!!
Thank you to all the school community and also a very generous donation.
We also thank our staff member Hester Alkemade who volunteered to have her beautiful blue locks shaved if we hit the target amount.
We started the day of celebration with a special Mercy Mass where Sr Elizabeth will be our special guest, and Fr Wilson blessed and distributed Centenary bag tags gift for all our students. If your child did not receive a bag tag please speak with your child's teacher next term.
Have a relaxing holiday break and we will see the students back on Tuesday 13 October 2020.
