Term 4 Week 9
Dear Parents, Carers and Students
I am sure all who attended our annual Banora Rocks performance on 26th November will agree that it was a wonderful evening of entertainment. The quality and variety of the performances continue to increase each year thanks to the efforts of our teachers, band leader, students and parents. This includes those involved in preparing performance items and those supporting in the backgrounds – whether in holding rooms, sound room, selling tickets etc. Thanks and congratulations to our coordinator Miss McGoldrick and all involved.
CIVIL ENGINEER NEEDED
Our P&C is looking at targeting their 2014 fundraising to support a major project for our school in the near future – improving, levelling and enlarging our school playground. To begin this project we need to engage a civil engineer to investigate the building of large retaining wall as part of this project. If we have an engineer within our parent community who may be interested in working on this project please contact me on 0755241444.
TYPHOON HAIYAN APPEAL
As all are aware typhoon Haiyan caused great devastation in the Philippines recently. While this story may not still be on our news reports the impact lingers for millions of people in the Philippines. Thanks to those families who contributed to the Philippine fundraiser appeal for donated items last week. There are various other appeals that families may be interested in supporting as well if they missed last week’s request – two of these are identified below. Even the smallest donation will be appreciated, I am sure. *Plan International is calling for donations to meet the basic needs of food, clean water and emergency. Cash donations can be made by going onto the Plan International website – www.plan.org.au *Compassion International is engaging on re-building 50 houses in Palompon. Donations may be made into Agape Outreach Inc bank account BSB:112879 Account no: 411354778
