GHPS Life 


Thank you to all the parents, carers and students who visited our Book Fair last term.  Thanks to you, Greenhills raised over $2,000 to go towards continuing to grow our library collection. From the Fair itself, we purchased 62 new books! These include the latest in the extremely popular Wings of Fire and Ella and Olivia series, several titles from The Bad Guys, Cat Kid and Dog Man series, numerous books by the wonderful Ahn Do, as well as an assortment of engaging picture fiction books and graphic novels.


Thanks again for your support with this fantastic fundraiser. There will be another Book Fair to look forward to in Term 4 – with dates to be announced later in the year.


Keep an eye out in the next few weeks for the updated Canteen Menu, Sushi Day and Wednesday Wonders. Please note that chicken nuggets can now only be purchased in packs of 3 for $3 or 6 for $5. 


We have now opened bookings to volunteer in the canteen. You can do this though Please call the office before making the booking for the required code. We will then verify that you have completed the Parent Helper Induction Session.
