In the lead up to the Community Fair, we are holding a BBQ at Aldi Wodonga on Sunday 3rd November. Profits from this BBQ will cover out of pocket expenses for the fair such as hair spray, face paint, balloons etc. The BBQ will be held from 8am (set up and preparation) to 3pm.  Please come down and support the school by buying a sausage!

As part of the school fair, there will be several carnival style rides including the cha cha and jumping castles. Tickets for these rides can be purchased individually (for approx. $5-$7) or, a more economical option is to purchase a wrist band which entitles the bearer to 3.5 hours of UNLIMITED RIDES. If purchased at the fair, these will cost $35. However, we are encouraging families to purchase these beforehand from the office for $30. A record of payments will be kept by Wendy and then bands fully paid for will be distributed the week of the fair. The cost of bands can be paid off eg. if you are purchasing two bands, you could pay $12 per week for the 5 weeks of term 4. PLEASE NOTE THAT WRIST BANDS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE AT THE FAIR.
