Community News Week 7

The Barbe-queue for sausages!

So much for a quiet spell! There is plenty to choose from in the upcoming weeks and it’s a great time to become involved, volunteer, join a club or cheer on a team at one of these wonderful P&F events. Read on to find details on booking tickets to the inaugural Rugby Boys Day Out, information on the Year 7 Kick-Up, Year 5 Family Gathering or the exciting news on our new ATC Bookclub.

A very big thank you must first be shouted out to Loretta Porche and her wonderful band of helpers for pulling together a fantastic Welcome Night. Of course, these large events are a combined effort from a group of parents with a positive outlook and determination. It was a fun event enjoyed by all.

We hope those of you who were able to join some Year 4 Lynch parents for coffee this week had a lovely time mixing and getting to know the ATCommunity. Thank you to Janelle for organising it. Dana Lutat and a team of volunteers cooked up a storm for the House BBQ Lunch on Thursday. Our friendly volunteers from the ATCommunity made it a success.
