COMMUNITY NEWS & EVENTS

WALK FOR AUTISM
Year 3/4/5/6 students enjoyed their visit from Greg Hunt last week when he called in to Fatima on his
walk around the electorate raising awareness and funds for Autism. Greg spoke to the students for half
an hour. He shared news of his work with endangered species. Many students were keen to share their
understanding and concerns with Greg. The talk then shifted to a focus on Autism – Greg talked about
some of the world’s most successful people who have Autism and also some of the challenges it can
present. He shared a video to help increase understanding and took questions from students before
continuing on to visit more schools on his way to Point Nepean. We raised $425 in support of Amaze
(Autism Victoria) and Abacus Centre in Hastings.
WOOLWORTHS EARN AND LEARN
Woolworths Earn & Learn is back and it is now easier than ever to earn valuable resources for your local primary school. Last year more than 14,500 schools and Early Learning Centres benefited from the program, boosting supplies in classrooms, libraries, music rooms, gymnasiums and science labs.
It's simple to participate. From Wednesday 15th July to Tuesday 8th September 2015, when you shop at Woolworths you can collect Woolworths Earn & Learn Stickers from the checkout operator or through an online order and place them on a Woolworths Earn& Learn Sticker Sheet. There'll be one Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker for every $10 spent. Once completed, simply place the Sticker Sheet in the Collection Box, either in the school office or at your local Woolworths. Your school can then redeem your Woolworths Earn & Learn Stickers for valuable education resources.
22nd to 28th August
The Theme this year is ‘books light up our world’. On Thursday 27th August the students will have a visit from
illustrator Paul Harvey and our book week parade will be on Friday 28th August.
