Primary Crazy Hair Day
Our Primary school students participated in a Crazy Hair Day last Friday. The aim of the day was to support The Leukaemia Foundation with a gold coin donation from each student. There were some great hair styles worn by both students and staff.
The highlight of the day was one of our students, Joshua Green from Year 2 shaved his head to support the Leukaemia Foundation ‘Shave for a Cure’. He will be donating his hair to make a wig for children with cancer.
Northern Zone Touch Football Championships

All games aim to be completed by approximately 3:30pm today. 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.
Year 11/12 Visual Arts Excursion
On Friday this week our Year 11 & 12 Visual Arts students will be visiting Arno Schilling’s Art Gallery (Private Residence) in Currumbin, the Tweed Regional Gallery and Margaret Olley Arts Centre in Murwillumbah. Arno Schilling is a sculptor, painter and designer of fine arts. His work is amazing, a very worthwhile display. At the Tweed Regional Gallery they will be visiting the Margaret Olley Arts Centre as part of their Year 12 studies.
The students will be completing the excursion in one day. They plan to leave McDonalds at South Grafton at 8:00 a.m. and return to the school at about 5:00 p.m. Travel is by private car driven by Cathy Irons.
Students will need to wear full formal school uniform and bring their own morning tea and lunch. There is no cost for the excursion but they may wish to bring some money for the gallery shop or a drink.
