Family Outdoor Movie Night

We hope that all of our families and friends enjoyed our first family outdoor movie night watching The Greatest Showman.

We would like to thank the Parents and Friends Association for their support with many members volunteering to help in the lead up to the event and also on the night.

We would also like to thank the food vendors and sponsors for supporting our event.

Stockland Shop for Schools Promotion

We have been invited to take part in the Stockland Shop for Schools Promotion again this year.

Please save your receipts when you shop at Stockland Point Cook (Town Centre) and place your receipts in an envelope available at the Customer Care desk or at the entry boxes. Don’t forget to tick the box for Point Cook College!

You can also send your receipts to school as homeroom teachers have an envelope to collect them in.

The dollar value you spend will be converted into points so that we can win a share in $20,000! The school who has the most points wins the biggest share!

The promotion will run until the 31st of October.

For more information please follow the link below.

Mango Tray Fundraiser

Our mango fundraiser is back! It was very popular last year so we are running it again.

Families and friends will have the opportunity to purchase fresh mangoes for only $25 per tray. The mangoes will be transported overnight from Queensland so they will be very fresh!

More information will be sent out through Compass and our Facebook page after the holidays.

Twilight Market – Save the Date!

Our annual Twilight Market will be held on Friday the 9th of November from 3-7pm.

We will have a range of stalls, food vendors and community groups who will attend. We will have a variety of entertainment on our outdoor stage and we will be holding our Science and Maker Fair on the night too. There will be something for everyone in your family to enjoy!

For further information please refer to our Facebook page and Compass email.

 The movie night will be held on Thursday 20th September from 5pm. We will be selling fairy floss, popcorn and have a variety of food trucks available too. The movie will start at 6.30pm.

Tickets will be $5 for adults and $2 for children. Details about how to buy tickets will be available soon. It should be a great night!

Second Hand Uniform Sale

The next uniform sale will be held on Tuesday 18th September

8.15 - 9.15 am and 2.30 - 3-15 pm

The sale will be held in the canteen, next to the gym.

Please note that we can only take cash payments. Items are $5 - $10 each.

We don't have all items of the uniform available in all sizes as it depends on the donations that we receive. If you have any items of uniform that you no longer need and would like to donate to our sale, please drop them off at the office. All of the money raised goes to welfare to help our families in need.

Thank you
