Thank you for your support! 2015 has been a very successful year for our community and one of the highlights for your P&F was to see the concept of a second hand shop, manned by volunteers, become a reality.

As you are aware, our Pop-Up Shop is now selling pre-loved uniforms and includes an area where parents, new and old, can come along for a cuppa and meet new friends. We 'popped up' again during the first week of school and thank everyone who came along to Koala House for your support and hope you enjoyed the coffee and conversation. We are very pleased with the increased quality of the uniforms that are now available for purchase. Your P&F plan to open at least two days per term, dependent on demand and stock on hand.

If you wish to donate uniforms surplus to your needs, these may be placed in the collection box outside the Events Office (at any time convenient). All donations are greatly appreciated by the Somerset Community and we thank you in advance, for your generosity. We also understand that you may wish to offer them by consignment, however, this is only possible if you visit the Pop-Up Shop when open to complete the paperwork.

Your P&F Committee all agreed that to ensure the continued successful operation of the Pop-Up Shop, processes and procedures are to be streamlined and respectful of the contribution of parent volunteers. As an alternative, we encourage you to place an advertisement online at www.sustainableschoolshop.com.au.

If you have an queries in relation to the Pop-Up Shop please do not hesitate to send us an email at parentsandfriends@somerset.qld.edu.au.

On a final note, if you are attending tonight's Celebration of the New School Year - Welcome to 2016 function in Towers Quad, we are looking forward to seeing you at this enjoyable occasion.
