PET DAY
Parent help is needed for show day animals. Mrs Vincent is the teacher in charge and Trish McCullough is the co-ordinator behind the scenes. We are very grateful for all of Trish’s help but she will be unavailable for next years event, so now would be a good time to show someone the ropes. If you can help out please phone the office 439 7255.

TONER RECYCLING CENTRE
Our school is continuing to support the T.R.C. program to help reduce industrial waste and you can help by sending any empty ink or toner cartridges from your faxes or computers to school for recycling. Thank you to all the people who have bought in empty cartridges to school for this, as a result we have received a cheque for $71.00. This enables us to purchase goods made from recycled items, such as rulers, cups and park bench seats.
