THE LAST FRANTIC WEEK: Fair preparations move into top gear next week as we count down to the big day. We are overwhelmed by the many acts of generosity we experience at this time of year. We are most grateful to our P&F for all the support we receive and from families and the local businesses. We ask that helper notes be returned by Monday at the latest, so that jobs can be allocated.

• Last meeting for stall holders & helpers - from 5:45pm Monday -27 October
• Setting up - Friday 31 October
• FAIR DAY - Saturday 1 November - 9:00am - 2:00pm setting up from 7:00am onward
SCHOOL SECURITY: Just a message to our families to let you know that we will be closing the front gate at 9:00am each morning until 3:00pm each day. This will allow the children to be familiar with an enclosed school throughout the entire day. We ask that parents please ensure that they close the gate behind them when entering the school grounds.
DIOCESAN LEADERSHIP TOUR TO SYDNEY: I am lucky enough to be able to attend a Diocesan tour with leadership team members from other schools next week from Wednesday-Friday (inclusive). This will be a wonderful opportunity to learn about how other schools coordinate programs and support them. I look forward to sharing with you all information when I return.

ENGAGEMENT NEWS: We are delighted to announce that Miss Eloise Burgmann and her partner Mr Jonathan Toombs were recently engaged. We look forward to two Aggies weddings next year!

BABY NEWS: Congratulations to the Lund family on the birth on Annabelle on 10 October, a baby sister for Jack (3C), Sophie (2DO), Lucy (KM) and Hugh.

PLANNING FOR 2015: We will soon begin the process of forming new class groups for 2015. If there is anything that we should be aware of that will affect your child’s placement, please contact me in writing, within the next two weeks. This is not an opportunity to choose a teacher - but simply the sharing of information that will assist us in making good decisions. It is difficult to make changes when the classes are finalised and virtually impossible at the beginning of the school year. No records are held from previous years, so please write another request if it is still required.

ARE YOU MOVING AWAY FROM PORT MACQUARIE?: If you know your child won’t be returning to St Agnes’ for the 2015 school year, could you please let us know as soon as possible, as we have had a number of families enquiring about possible enrolments. Your assistance in this regard is much appreciated.
