Salvos Christmas Appeal
During week 8 and 9 both staff and students have had an opportunity to contribute to Salvos Christmas Appeal. On Monday 14th December Capt. Carol O’leary and Fred Appleby, representing Salvation Army Swan View Corps came to collect the donations. A group of student council have decorated the Christmas tree, placed the donated gifts under the tree and welcomed the Salvos representatives. Thank you to all who have made it possible for our school to give back to the community in this way, which will make a difference for some of those whom are less fortunate.
