Community News for Week 6

Thank you to our wonderful volunteer’s who helped out with Friday’s House Lunch. School events like these rely on the commitment of the school parent community to help bring them together, and we truly thank you all for your assistance.

We wish all those Year 5 families a lovely day out as they participate in the Alzeimer’s Australia Walk-a-thon tomorrow. Please look out for the organiser Dana Lutat and her family, and the ATC banner. Please wear ATC Supporter’s gear or ATC colours so that ATC families can walk together in the blue, green and white!

Join the Scouts
The purpose of Scouts Australia is to encourage the physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development of young people so that they may take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens, and as members of their local, national and international communities. Today’s Scouts can take part in an extraordinary variety of outdoor activities, from ‘traditional Scouting skills’ such as camping and bushcraft, through to more extreme challenges such as abseiling, overnight hiking, rafting, canoeing, canyoning, snow activities, rock climbing, sailing… even flying!
