On 7 November a UnitingCare West truck will be collecting boxes of donated goods for the annual Christmas Appeal. There is one more week to get non-perishable food items and new toys to the boxes provided for that purpose in the House Head offices in the Senior School.

Boys in the Middle and Junior Schools are encouraged to put together shoe boxes for refugees containing: something to wear, something to play with: something for school and something for hygiene. These should be brought in to school before 7 November.

First Disabled Surfing Event for the Summer

On Saturday 5 December the first Disabled Surfing event for the year will be held at Leighton Beach. As there is a sport bye on that day, it is a good opportunity for senior boys (Year 10-12) to participate in this wonderful service activity. Scotch volunteers will join with volunteers from other schools and adult volunteers to enable disabled participants to enjoy the beach environment.
