Commonwealth Bank School Banking Update – Please Read
Concerns have been raised regarding the ‘Cosmic Light Beam Torch’ reward item due to the inclusion of four button batteries that can be accessed by unscrewing the back of the torch.
Whilst this reward has been independently tested and deemed to meet relevant product standards the Commonwealth Bank have made the decision to proactively withdraw this item from the School Banking Rewards Program.
Parents/Guardians are requested to dispose of any ‘Cosmic Light Beam Torches’ their child may have already received as part of the Rewards Program. Students who have previously received a ‘Cosmic Light Beam Torch’ are welcome to redeem an alternative reward item.

Woolworths Earn & Learn
Wow! We have, so far, 13, 200 points.
Well done but we would like to get lots of wonderful resources for our school and students so keep them coming in. Some things to remember though. We can only use the correct sheets. These can be downloaded off the woolworths website or I have some in the library. Any stickers that are not on these sheets will not be counted. Also only use the sixty squares that are on the sheets. If you put extra stickers on the sheets they will not be counted either.
Don't forget their is double points up for grabs this weekend.

Fathers Day Stall & Raffle
The Father’s Day stall will be held at the College on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd of September at the canteen.
Students from all year levels will have the opportunity to purchase a gift for their loved ones during school hours.
In accordance to Department of Education and Training Policy, any medication required three times per day may be given before school, after school and before bed. This avoids too many medications being stored at the school and prevents from disruption to your child/children’s learning time.
Should your child require medication at specific times during school hours this must be specified on a letter signed by a Medical Practitioner.
