Dear Members of our Community of Faith,

On Wednesday everyone enjoyed a wonderful sunny day down at the pool. Thankyou to all those who were able to help out on the day. Your assistance is very much appreciated and helps make the day run smoothly. A big thank you to Mrs Mott-Pekolj for all the extra work and hours to make this day possible. Congratulations to St Francis of Assisi for taking out the win with 1,505 points. St John Bosco finished with a total of 1,288 points. Well done to all our age champions who are mentioned on an attached page. Can families please check the lost property box as there were a number of items left at the pool.
