Have you signed up yet for the PTA Quiz next Friday night? The satisfaction to been gained from beating Mr Smith's team should not be underestimated. Rumours in the staffroom suggest he has signed up another sport, music and art trivia buff to bolster his team. 'Excellent and outstanding' is not enough, the elusive title and prestige associated with winning PTA Quiz is on his 'to do' list!
Never ones to shy away from thinking about others in our community and the world at large, the Junior School Council have already decided to lend their support this term to Sport Relief in March but more urgently they wanted to raise awareness and support the work of the rural firefighters tackling the widespread bushfires in Australia. The School Council have decided that on the Friday closest to Australia day (Sunday 26th January) they would like to raise awareness of this issue by creating a chain of 1p, 2p and 5p coins in the dining room totalling the distance in miles from St Gabriel's to Australia. This would mean having over 9,741 coins laid side by side. As a small community we know this is a large number of coins to collect but your loose change could really help other small communities in rural areas of New South Wales. Junior School parents have been asked to send in 1p, 2p, 5p coins on Friday 24th January but if anyone else in the school community has a pot of loose change to help achieve this ambitious target it would be appreciated. We will keep you posted on whether we can make the distance from here to Australia and show solidarity with our sister school, St Hilda's on the Gold Coast, Queensland.
