St Andrew’s will be competing in the Northern Zone Touch Football Championship on Tuesday 13th March, 2018 at Saunders Oval, Ballina. The championship will be a round robin format tournament with our school fielding mixed primary as well as secondary teams (junior / senior boys and girls).
All students will be traveling by bus to Ballina. The cost will be $25 per student which is to be paid to the school office by Thursday 8th March. The bus will depart at 7.00am from McDonalds, South Grafton. Please make sure your child is there at 6:50am so that the bus can leave at 7:00 am sharp. The bus will be traveling down the Pacific Highway to Ballina and passing by the Lower Clarence area.
All games aim to be completed by approximately 3:30pm. This means that we will be returning to Grafton McDonalds (South Grafton) at approximately 5:00pm. To confirm that we are leaving on time and therefore arriving on time back to McDonalds South Grafton, (or earlier pick up places) please ring the school prior to 3:00 (6643 4770) to confirm our time of arrival.
Note: It is important that all parents are ready to drop off and pick up their child at the times given as we want to be on time to the competition and return home at a reasonable time in the afternoon. Please be aware that if your child is to be dropped off at Ferry Park you must be waiting there to pick them up. We are unable to leave students waiting at the park and if there is no one there to pick them up within 5 minutes they will be brought back to McDonalds in South Grafton as we need to get the remainder of the coach back on schedule.
The school sports uniform is to be worn on the day. In addition to this, students are encouraged to bring their own lunch and water bottle as only a canteen with some light food and drinks will be available.
The P & F had its first Bunnings BBQ on Saturday. The day was a huge success and we would like to thank all those families and staff members who volunteered on the day.
Our Year 7 vaccinations have been postponed to Monday 26th March. There will be reminders sent out prior to this date.
On Thursday last week our Secondary Zone Swimming Team competed in the Christian Schools North Coast Zone Championships at the Grafton Aquatic Centre. Our swimmers did exceptionally well. A number of our students have made it through to the State Championships which will be held in Sydney later in the term.
