starThis term the grade 4’s have participated in the MS Readathon. The Readathon is a fundraiser to raise money for research into the disease Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Congratulations Grade 4 on a great effort!

At the beginning of the fundraiser, grade 4s set the goal to raise $250 for the MS Society. They decided to work towards reading 120 books in the 30 day period. The grade persisted with the fundraising and managed to raise an outstanding $663.70!

Pancake Day

Pancakes are traditionally made on this day, Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday which is the first day of Lent for Christians. Students, from years 8 to 11 at our school, under the leadership of Mrs Gow and Mrs Keith, cooked pancakes, selling them for 50 cents each to raise money for the bushfire appeal. Toppings included sugar, lemon juice, jam or maple syrup. They were yummy!! More than $100 was raised towards the appeal.
