End of year Live at Hollywood Disco
Friday 7 December 2018
Our graduating Grade 6s would like to invite you all to celebrate one last disco with them. Everyone is welcome — we’ve planned carefully to make sure this event will be fun for everyone, from Preps to Year Sixes.
Come dressed as your favourite Hollywood character!
Tickets are available on Qkr! and are $10 per child, including entry, pizza, slushie and a drink bottle. Adult entry is free (but you get to buy your food and drinks!).
We’re going for a different format this year — the disco starts at 6pm and it will be a closed event hosted by Creative Dance Industries. Kids will stay inside for the dance, but will come out for a short interval at 6.45 with a finish time of 8pm. We’ll have lots of ways to keep cool inside and noise levels will be appropriate for all.
Adults, please relax outside and reminisce about the year that has been, have a drink at our parents’ bar and make a gold coin donation for some delicious food!
As this event is hosted by the Grade 6s, they are staffing the stalls, but volunteer parents to help oversee them are always welcomed — please email Amanda if you are free to help out on the night (or before) firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Witches of East Brissie and a couple of blokes
Anti Einsteins - The longest running team in the School - 39

Three fine teams trawling the bottom for wooden spoon honours.
A special mention goes to Quizlamic State for the Highest score in a round
Thanks to Bryn, Cath, Tracey and Danni for their Trivial efforts over the last 5 years. The baton has been passed so stay tuned for next year, but for now it's time to thank everyone for the all the fun and excitement that was Trivia 2018.
We'd like to thank everyone who helped on the evening, particularly Anthea and Tracy in the kitchen doing the amazing job they usually do, along with Charlee, Carys, Angharad and Charlie. A special nod to Eugene and Roo in particular who has been a constant throughout our Trivia nights for the last five years as well as Clytie B. our refuse queen. Thanks for the tunes fellas.
Thanks to the P and C and anyone else who we have failed to mention. You are all important and we can't do this business without you.
Speaking of business - thankyou so much to all our sponsors and donators - especially school families.

Solstice Planting & Celebration — Saturday 23 June 2018
Our end-of-term family event this term will combine gardening with midwinter fun.
Mr Bryant is hosting a garden planting session from 2—4pm, and from 4—6pm the P&C will be selling warming pumpkin soup and desserts for a feast on the oval. Mr Bryant is planning a small campfire to add to the winter ambience, and to make some charcoal for his new biodynamic school garden beds.
We'll have some music from one of our parent's bands, Eugene and the Egg, so bring your picnic blanket and beanie and kick back and relax after our gardening working bee. BYO mug for the soup, which will be on sale for $5 (served with beautiful ciabatta bread from Gerbino's Italian Bakery). We'll also be selling hot chocolates and a range of other treats for children and parents, so bring your spare change.
So put the date in your diary: it’s a great chance to make the Cowley St entrance to the school look great, socialise with other school families, and raise funds for our gardening program. Bring gardening gloves and a sun hat for the planting
We’re inviting families to donate desserts to sell. If baking’s your thing please let us know what you’ll bring by emailing email@example.com

The 2017 fete was a record breaker, making more than $18,000 for P&C programs. That’s paid for the school Environmental Education Program, and our music and sports instrument purchases, with change put towards air conditioning the school library.
Thanks everyone for an amazing effort on what was a really fun family day.
Photos taken on the day have now been uploaded to a Google Photo Album. Click on the button below to download photos of your children having fun.
