    Dear Parents and Friends Last Friday the members of the School Advisory Board hosted an evening to thank the members of the Working Party who worked extremely hard over two weekends to develop the area which is now known as Bonnie’s Playground and those parents who worked so hard to bring us the Robbie Williams experience. The Working Party comprised a sub-committee from the School Advisory Board, members of the Mad Team and volunteers from the Parish and school community. This Working Party was led by Phil Georgiou who was keenly supported by Peter McKenna as leader of the MAD Team. At Friday night’s function, Denise Chang Faux, on behalf of the members of the Parents’ Association, presented me with a cheque to the value of $10,404.35 which has been allocated to cover some of the costs of the re- development of the junior playground. Paul George, Chairperson of the School Advisory Board, thanked all those who were involved in these two projects and spoke of the community spirit of St. Mary’s and how, when we come together with a purpose in mind, so much can be achieved. I personally wish to thank all those involved in bringing Bonnie’s Playground to fruition and to let each of you know that your contributions make a huge difference to our school and how much I value and appreciate all that you do. GENEROUS SUPPORT Over the weekend, Rino Reginato came in and completed line marking in the William Street car park and re-painted the speed humps. This is another example of the generous spirit of those within our community. Thank you Rino. This wonderful contribution by you is very much appreciated. WORKING BEE Our next Working Bee will be held this Saturday 16 August and has been assigned to Yr. 3 families. To keep our grounds looking great, we need your support at Working Bees. We look forward to seeing many families in attendance. This is also an opportunity to meet others in a relaxed environment. SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT SURVEYS Thank you to those parents who have completed surveys so far. Surveys should be completed online by 22 August.
