P&F Welcome Night Mexican Fiesta Saturday 25 February

You may have seen some gringos hanging around the drop off zones this week! Thank you to the boys for helping promote the “Mexican Fiesta”. It is a great way for parents and carers to meet new friends and catch up with old friends. We encourage you to come along, meet new friends over a frozen margarita and enjoy being part of the infamous ATCommunity. Please jump online to book your tickets here.

Come along and meet other parents in your son’s year and you will be able to know who they are as we’ll give you a coloured necklace corresponding to your son’s year on arrival. We know how to make it easy to meet new friends at your new school!
