Community News for the New Term

Welcome back to Term 2 – hopefully everyone is refreshed and had an enjoyable holiday. Just before the holidays started, Andrew Taylor coordinated our annual Boys Day Out at the Rugby. Despite the weather and the final score, it was a fun-filled, edge-of-your-seats event for all the Rugby tragics! Thank you to Andrew for organising this event, and to the community for supporting it. As always, our wonderful P&F committee and volunteers have some great events coming up. Please book early to assist us with our planning.

Upcoming P&F events
