Walking for Cure Brain Cancer

Last Sunday, Aidan and Ethan Zorbas  fundraised for Cure Brain Cancer Foundation, a charity close to their heart. They walked 5kms for Cure Brain cancer at Centennial Park. The boys raised over $1000 which is a fantastic effort.

Thanks to the CPS families who helped them reach their goal.

Fire Appeal

Fire Appeal

We would also like to assist the fire appeal by donating clothes, non-perishable food and household items which will assist those who have lost their homes and belongings in the devastating fires. Clothing can be second hand but obviously need to be in good condition.

Zavier Prichard in Year 3 suggested this idea and as a school it would great to see everyone lend their support. There is a box in the hall in which you can place any items that you wish to donate. It will be there until the end of the term.

Before the end of the term, we will have a Messina ice cream day and all proceeds will be donated to the fire appeal. Thank you to the P & F for organising this for us.
