All Saints Art Competition
The Special Character leaders have decided to do an All Saints Day competition for all ages. The competition started yesterday and has to be in by 2 November. The task is to make a sketch of a saint you like and send it to the year 8 class or the Special Character leaders. Make it colorful and bright. You are allowed to use paint, glitter and pastels. We will announce the winners on 18th November and we will pick 2 winners from the junior school and 2 winners from the senior school and there are so cool prizes on the grab so make sure to hand it in before 2 November. Thank you, Rhea and Michael.

Mobile Phone Appeal
It would be great if you could rummage around in your drawers and toy boxes and bring into school any unwanted mobile phones you may have.  Phones collected help our school gain valuable rewards and the environment benefits too by keeping our landfills free of mobile phones and their array of hazardous toxic substances.  Please drop any unwanted mobile phones you may have into the collection box in the school office.
