The committee will officially take up their positions in September, but will be doing some work towards next year in the coming weeks, including their first full committee meeting next Wednesday after school.

Thanks once again to all students that applied and took part in the selection process and thanks to all students and staff for their support.

Christmas Gift BAGS 2015 – Mission Complete!

Thank you so much for all your generosity. Many of our school families are themselves under considerable financial pressure, especially at this time of year, so it really is profound generosity we see in the pictures below of our very-own Santa-Sleigh (mini-bus).

For some families, the gifts donated by JOA are the only ones that they will receive this Christmas.

Well done and sincere thanks to everyone who contributed!
