Last Saturday's Athletics Day Carnival was yet another successful event, providing many long-lasting memories to share with our children, other parents, staff, teachers and friends. We are extremely appreciative to live in such a generous and supportive community.

There were plenty of highlights for your Parents' and Friends' Association, who managed the Spider Hut, Sausage Sizzle and canteen at Koala House. It was a great display of friendship and teamwork. Some of these include:

  • An overwhelming contribution of donated cakes, slices, lollies, chips, fruit, the list goes on and on. Special thanks to the Pac Avenue Markets at Miami (Samra family) for your generous donation of several boxes of fruit which was complimentary for all students. Also very special thanks to parent Katherine Just, whose unbelievable creation of a hamburger and chips cake put smiles on everyone's faces and was the talk of Somerset.
  • Approximately 40 enthusiastic and happy parents helping to feed the hungry crowd, serving hundreds of burgers, sausage sizzle, breakfast rolls and 120kg of chips! We thank each and every one of you. Your assistance was invaluable and greatly appreciated.
  • Our 'Pop-Up' Shop selling pre-loved uniforms at 50% to 70% recommended retail price. Thank you for your enthusiastic and positive support to continue this service. Keep an eye out via Schoolbox for future opening times, information on collection points for donations and items to sell on consignment.

We would also like to acknowledge the enormous contribution of the Events, Maintenance and The Ray Building teams, along with the support of our Headmaster, Mr Craig Bassingthwaighte.

Your P&F proudly supports opportunities to build friendships and raise funds which enhance our children's Somerset College Experience. If you would like further information on your P&F or would like to become involved, please do not hesitate to email Our next meeting is being held on Tuesday 9 August, 6.30pm in The Arnison Building Boardroom and all parents are warmly welcomed.
