Community spirit is alive and well at Somerset! The Parents' and Friends' Association has been very busy over the last couple of weeks organising the Junior, Senior Inter-House Swimming Carnival and Junior APS canteens.
A great display of teamwork with many parents volunteering their time to ensure it ran efficiently. Their efforts were rewarded with plenty of good humour abound. Thanks to everyone involved for your assistance. The students were a pleasure to serve, as they were all very polite and obviously enjoying the festivities.
The number of families who generously donated lollies, muffins, cakes, chips and biscuits overwhelmed us. Special mention to the anonymous person who donated $50 at the start of the Junior School Carnival so that our children could be given free fruit during the carnival. Your P&F Committee, who met the following day, agreed it was a great gesture and all agreed to provide free fruit at all future sporting carnivals. Whoever you are, your incredible act of kindness has left a lasting legacy (we would love to hear from you). Feedback from parents and students was extremely positive and appreciative.
On another note, if you would like to peruse Minutes that have been recently read and passed by your Committee, they can be found within Schoolbox, under the Parents' and Friends' Association Group page. Our next meeting is scheduled on Tuesday 8 March, 6.30pm in The Arnison Building Boardroom.
Of course, we can't go without thanking the Events, Ray Building and Maintenance teams for their professionalism and invaluable assistance.
