CLASS RAFFLE BASKETS!
Our School Council has asked us to help support raising funds for our own school as well by creating ‘class raffle baskets’. These baskets should include objects donated by our students or other places that you know that support schools. These baskets may include objects/equipment pertaining to sports, music, arts and crafts, games, movies or a basket of miscellaneous objects that your children and family would enjoy. Please consider donating items to help fill these baskets to support our school.  

Whatever your child's class collects will be wrapped up into a basket of ‘goodies’ and raffled off at our Community BBQ and Fun Fair on June 8th. We hope that the funds generated will help us pay for many school resources and upgrades. We thank all parents/guardians for helping us with this initiative and participating in both the donations and the raffle. Thanks for your help! Remember to send in Raffle donations by Wednesday ....Thanks!

Fun Fair Games and Bouncy Castles! - Tickets will be on sale for fun on our Bouncy Castles, face painting and Fun Fair Games so bring some extra cash to enjoy these activities and a chance to win a terrific raffle basket too! 

Westminster Cookbook! We are hoping to have our first Westminster Cookbook published and ready for sale at our Fun Fair for $15 with all proceeds going to our school. So bring some extra cash to buy your family this fantastic student-tested book of recipes!

See you all there!
