Welcome to the new PA post in the newsletter. We have had some exciting events happen this term, the first of which was the appointment of the 2017 Committee. This team of volunteers are all very passionate about Charlton Christian College.

The Bush Dance which was held on Saturday 3rd June – was a huge success. We saw many college families come to enjoy the Bush Fire Band and ‘boot scoot’ the night away. There were games, prizes, a sausage sizzle and plenty of dancing by parents, kids, teachers and even Mr Ash got in on the fun!

The Top Floor Cafe opened too – and provided warm drinks and food. Thanks to Donna, Estelle and Anne and the Kraft family who helped out for the evening. Your efforts were very much appreciated and added a great atmosphere to this event.

A big thank you to all our volunteers leading up to the event and on the night but a special thanks to the Harrower Family for their hard work – without them, the night wouldn’t have been possible.

Last Friday the PA Hosted the annual staff breakfast. This event is always very much appreciated and this year was no exception. It is our privilege to serve the staff in this way, to show our appreciation for all their hard work, dedication and commitment to the college and our children. Again, thank you to the PA Committee and all the volunteers that cooked, prepared and served – especially our two men on the BBQ – Daniel Orozovic and James Potter – who cooked up some mean bacon and eggs!

Our next event is the Girls Night In – on Saturday 21 October which will no doubt be another fun night – don’t forget to book your spot!

Lastly, we are always looking for people to help in even the smallest of ways – could be to help package gifts for our mothers and fathers day stalls, to cooking a BBQ – whatever time you can spare is appreciated, and it counts to your college volunteer hours! Please contact us for more information!

Until next time, watch this space!
