Week 7 Term 3

Shoebox Donations - 
If you haven't done so yet, can you please send these items and also the $2.50 for postage costs in by the next Friday 7th September that would be greatly appreciated. This is a wonderful OLC tradition that is so worthwhile for our children to think of others.  We encourage students to do extra jobs at home to help collect the money and gift donation for children on the other side of the world.  Please feel free to see us if you have any questions or check the previous blog post for links to the Operation Christmas Child project.

Book Week Dress Up - This Thursday is our Book Week Dress Up day! We ask that all students come dressed as a character from their favourite book ready to parade on Thursday after recess. If your child is able to bring their book as well, that would be great! They will be asked to explain their character during the parade.
