The main mission of our Parents’ Association events is to enhance the wonderful sense of community within our lovely school - we believe the Xmas Fayre did just that. The PA have been humbled by an incredible amount of wonderful feedback from so many parents, teachers and vendors complementing the tremendous efforts of all our hard working members. However, what made us the most proud of our volunteers' efforts has been to see the joy on the faces of the children. Starting from the small eager eyes searching the Xmas tree for their home decorated bauble to the tiny hands gripping Lucky Dip jars while running through the Xmas Fayre – this is what makes all the hours of diligence worthwhile. A big massive heartfelt THANK YOU from us to to you for your generous donations in materials, the hours of dedicated time and of course for participating in, and attending, our PA events.
We would like to especially thank the core team for this event:
Torben Brunbakke for the abundance of carefully made creations and his always energetic management of equipment.
Marie Reddan & Liz Alderson for absolutely always helping in every possible way they can.
Marina Alexandrova for her meticulous attention to detail and organisation.
Donna Limin for the incredibly organised and efficient management of the Grotto, including gifts, elves and Santas!
Julia August for the most articulate communication at any hour needed
Carlos Lemgruber for his varied support for whatever was needed before, during (as Santa…) and after the events.
Sophia Radford & Cindy Godin for designing really adorable decorations and managing a full team of creative volunteers.
Manuela Lotz for endless baking, endless sweets donations and extensive column rolling.
Adam Forsyth and Julia Dreher - our awesome professional parent photographers.
KAFO & JLF Coaches for generously donating their time and expertise in coaching the popular Football Shootout and the Fun Obstacle Course.
The team of Year 10 student volunteers for their enthusiasm and responsible attitude.
Lastly, a huge thanks to our main volunteers for dedicating themselves to the Xmas season PA festivities:
Mark, Kylie, Joelle, Charmaine, Dilanthi, Millie, Izabela, Nadine, Sarah, Kristi, Bernadette, Heather, Reem, Patricia, Monica, Dave (and his 3 super helpful children), Muriel, Ian, May, Toutem, Celeste, Michaela, Nadia, Layla, Andrea and Barbara.
(Sorry if we missed anyone - your help is always appreciated!)
We hope you have a festive and relaxing holiday break (as we’ll all be back to work on the next PA event soon….)
Svenja Cassia & Maria Murgian
