P&F Sundowner
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the P&F Sundowner on Tuesday 15 November. Our inaugural event was a fantastic success and we look forward to making it an annual highlight on the school calendar. Thanks also to Principal, Anne Ford who joined us on the evening to draw the raffle. Congratulations to Donna Downing who won 2017 School Fees for her eldest child and to Julian Lee, who won the 2017 ICT Levy. We also hope to make this raffle an annual event. Our grateful thanks go to Hospitality Coordinator, Susan Leach and her wonderful team of Year 10 Hospitality students for their impressive catering and service skills.

Final weeks
With the last few weeks of school fast approaching I would like to send a warm and heartfelt ‘Merry Christmas and happy holidays’ to all our John Wollaston families; 2016 has gone by so quickly. To everyone who helped, attended, supported and enjoyed the P&F and our activities this year, thank you! I would also like to send a personal thank you to the incredibly hard-working P&F Committee for all their efforts and support this year. We’ve had a fantastic year and attempted some new initiatives, and our school simply wouldn’t be the community it is without these amazing people. I look forward to an equally successful 2017 and wish you all a well-deserved break.
