The P&C will also be holding the Easter raffle prize draw on Friday morning. Thank you to all the families who provided donations for the raffle.
Thank you to all the families who took an interest and lodged a survey indicating their preference regarding the language to be taught at the school as from next year. The results of the survey will be discussed at a School Board meeting next term. If you haven’t lodged a survey and would like to, there is still time to lodge one and be in the draw for a prize.

Bickley Camp Open Day
The Bickley School Camp is having an open day on Sunday 30 April. The P&C are holding a cake stall to raise money for resources for the school to benefit all children. Please donate ready-made cakes or ingredients to the P&C to assist in raising money for the school. Thank you.
School fees are now $45 as from April 1. If families still haven’t paid school fees for this year, please consider paying to assist the school to purchase student resources. We are a very small school and rely on fees to supplement the Student Centred Funding we receive from the Education Department. Our fees are the lowest in the area.
The students from Pre-primary to Year 2 were involved in an award winning, free financial education program on Thursday 9 March. As part of the participation in this ‘Start Smart’ program the children have been given one Teleporter Adventure Kit each to take home today to open with their parents/guardians.
Enjoy your holidays and we’ll see everyone back on Wednesday 26 April.
