Thanks to everyone who has volunteered in any way this year at school, on trips, camps and in many other ways. We can't do a lot of our activities with out parent help. Also a huge thank you to the wonderful people who brought in morning tea for the staff a few weeks ago, it was very much appreciated and lasted us a few days!

Less Important but good to know.

Whole school production. We had a few questions about ticket prices as explained this was purely to recoup the cost for putting it on. Our final outgoings were $15,000 this covered staging, lighting, sound and set. As well as some staff costs for relieving teachers while teachers were taking rehearsals during class time. From ticket sales we recouped approximately $14,000 meaning we made a loss of $1000. We had budgeted for a loss of up to $3000.
