Australia Day Lunch 

For lunch we will come together as a group and enjoy a BBQ. We will cook sausages on the BBQ  with salads also available. Please don't forget your child's hat, as we will be outdoors playing 'Aussie' games and singing songs around the BBQ as our lunch cooks.

 Supporting those in need...

As you are all aware of the catastrophic fires that have been happening around Australia. We thought this would be a great day to collect cash donations for the Koala's that have been injured in the Bush Fires. A bucket will be available at the administration desk and we ask if each family are in a position to make a cash donation. 

100% of donations will be donated to the Adelaide Koala Rescue group.
