Community news for the holidays

The end of term is upon us finally and we can take a breather. Thanks to the Music Support Group for providing the BBQ and Bar at the Junior Concert on Tuesday night. The fun and games continue in term 3 but before then, our Year 4 families are gathering at Sherwood Arboretum on 29 June. Tickets are on sale for our Term 3 events, so please book early. Time to sort out your fancy dress costumes for Trivia Night and book your table of 10.

Next book club will be held at Laurraine Murray’s place (287J Kenmore Road, Fig Tree Pocket) on Monday 17 July. We are reading “The Mayne Inheritance” by Rosamond Siemon. Enjoy a read over the holidays and join us on 17 July.
