School Closure Day
This coming Monday, 6th August, is a student free day. Staff will be learning about peer observations. All students will return to school on Tuesday 7th August.
Open Morning Change of Day
As of next week, Open Morning Day will change from Monday to Friday. Classrooms will be open for drop off from 8:35-8:50am. This is a great opportunity to see your child in their learning environment. The parent survey results from last year indicated that Friday was also a preferred choice.
We hope to see you at Open Mornings, starting Friday 10th August.
Thank you for Digging Deep
The Trivia Night Gala was a resounding success with everyone in attendance having a wonderful time. The Trivia rounds were a tight contest and I am pleased to report that both the teacher tables drew equal second with Table 18 being crowned the winners. There were many laughs, competitive bidding for the live auction items, fast bidding on the on-line auction (which was a monumental success) and some impressive air guitar to win your table some extra points. The night ended with some spectacular displays on the dance floor and impromptu karaoke.
The hours that go into preparing an evening like this are long. The leg work to gather the amazing donations, the phone calls, the meetings, the set up and preparation before the evening. Then there are the volunteers on the night who ensured everything ran smoothly and the team who packed down. A huge thank you to Bec Giorgilli, her team and the Events Committee who put the night together. Thank you to the Platinum and Gold Sponsors for supporting the evening, to all the Galilee families who generously made donations and to the local businesses who supported our annual fundraiser.
I am thrilled to be able to announce that we raised approximately $30,000 from the evening. We will have a final official figure in the coming weeks which we will report in the newsletter. This is an amazing effort and testament to the parents who volunteer their time and to the families who so generously supported this fundraiser.
