Raising money for our Farmers in need – Casual Clothes Day

On Thursday, 6th September, we had a Casual Clothes Day for the drought effected farmers. We asked each family to donate with all money raised going to help people in our farming communities.
Some people dressed up as farmers, cows, sheep or other farm animals. Some students and teachers came dressed in casual clothes. All together we raised $4300. We are so proud of what was achieved.
We had a fun day and hope the farmers appreciate the money. Thank you for being involved and being so generous.

Our Grandparents and Special Friends made the children’s smiles shine bright all day!

Grandparents and Special Friends Day is always a memorable day for our students and their visitors. For many of our students it is the highlight of the year. It is beautiful witnessing the special bond between grandparents and grandchildren. Last Friday, Week 6, Term 3, was filled with laughter, appreciation, respect and pure joy. The bringing together of people who care so much for each other.

Our visitors began the day with a special welcome and concert held in the Immanuel College Chapel. Year 6 Student Leaders with the support of our Reception students (via video) shared ways that they were building the new IPS foundations of respect, flourish and serve. This was followed with our orchestra and choirs entertaining the large audience and showcasing their outstanding talents. Thank you to Peter Habib and Cathy Travaglione for your ongoing development of our music students.

Special time was then spent in the classrooms with lots of excitement as students shared their learning with loved ones.

Your generous contributions from Year 5 Cake Stall and the Raffle has enabled the school to forward $1500.00 to support the work of ALWS and will assist our farmers in need.
