Daylight Savings - It begins again on Sunday 25 September 2011 (when clocks go forward one hour). This can be a difficult adjustment for some children (and adults).
End of Term 3—Friday 7th October. School will be closed for 2 weeks and Term 4 begins on Tuesday 25th October.
Hats– all children need to wear sun hats that will protect their face, head and neck from the sun, during Term 4. We have school hats but children sometimes keep a spare hat at school.

PET DAY – Wednesday the 5th of October- We would like any contributions to the grocery raffle and the white elephant please. We also need volunteers for the sheep shearing and the dung drop.
Bridge Hold Up- The bandits had a very successful afternoon at the Coroglen Bridge and raised $2089.90 which will make a dent in the price of the camp. Thank you to Kylie Kahotea, Jessie, Kale, Kerry, and to Kelly and Johnny @Monrad Excavators for donating the lollies. All up the Fundraising Group have given us $4089.90 towards camp including $600 which has been earmarked for parents petrol costs. You are stars.
Year 5-8 Senior Camp – 7-9th November – Two nights and three days. I will be calling a meeting for parents early next week when details are finalised and we have firm bookings. There are still one or two who haven’t indicated whether they will be coming or not.
Jump Rope – We are having our jump off next Friday the 30th of September. Sponsor forms are with this newsletter.
Coroglen School Vege Garden – We have vegetables going to seed. Please feel free to pick our veges. We will be replanting in a week or two.
