Sacred Heart School Fair
Dear Parents
Thank you all very much for all the support given to make our school fair so successful today. So far we have banked about $12000 with additional  income and expenses still to be sorted. This is outstanding and a huge thanks must go to the organising committee. An excellent community event made possible with your help.

Final Fair Notice

Dear parents

Thank you to everyone for the support you have given. The weather forecast is looking favourable (we haven’t been disappointed in the last 20 years) and everything is now coming together nicely.

School Mass
The children will line up in the foyer at 10.15 on Sunday morning for mass. They do not need to wear their uniforms this time. I expect all Sacred Heart children to be at Mass this Sunday.

The Cake Walk and Baking
Please drop off all your baking and cakes for The Cake walk to the hall on Saturday (between 10 and 2) or on Sunday morning before Mass.

Help Needed
If you are available on Saturday between 10 and 2, we would love your help in setting up for the fair. We have White Elephant produce to sort and price, lots of lifting and sorting and 4 tents to be put up.

If you have heavy duty extension cords please label them

Kapa Haka and Choir
The Kapa Haka group is to meet Miss Smith near the truck at 12.10pm.

The Choir is to meet Mrs Rippingale near the truck after the Kapa Haka performance.

Please remind these children they need to wait until after their performances to go on the rides.

A reminder for the children to bring lots of coins with them on Sunday.
