What a huge finish to the year for the students, especially year 6!
From camp, to Whirligig, the Jazz picnic, Clovelly Farm working bees, bake sales, the tea towel project, and the mini fete, it has been the busiest term 4 on record!
To the parent and community volunteers who leaned in to make all of this happen, as well as the extra effort by the teachers, a massive thank you from all of us at the P&C.
At long last the School Hall Project is gaining momentum. The tender for the construction contract has closed and we expect it will be awarded before the end of term, by the Dept of Education. Stay tuned for the construction timeline. Thanks again to all those who have already donated to the project, we will relaunch the campaign in the new year once the final scope and price are confirmed.
The P&C applied and were successful in gaining the NSW Government Community Building Partnership Grant. Assisted by the ever-supportive Dr Marjorie O’Neill MP, the $120,000 grant for the school hall project will be matched by the Department of Education bringing the total value to $240,000; a huge amount which will really help ensure the new school hall project is brought to life.
I would like to extend a big thank you to the P&C members involved in pursuing and securing this grant; it really is a huge win for the school and our community.
I would also like to thank COOSC for their very generous $90,000 donation to the project which will also help the school maximise the execution of the much-needed hall upgrade.
