Female helpers needed for Father’s Day Breakfast on Friday 5th Sept.  We need help with setup & cooking from 6.30am, serving from 7.30am to 8.45am & packup from 8.45am. The Father’s Day Breakfast is a fantastic School tradition enjoyed by Dads / Grandparents / and male carers and their children. Our first ever Mother’s Day Breakfast was a fantastic success this year, so lets all now give back to our Dads and male carers in our school community!  If you can help please SMS or call Natasha on 0419 115 449.
