Hi everyone. We are desperate for canteen helpers on a Friday. There is no cooking or food prep involved. You only need to open up and supervise the grade 6 leaders doing the selling. 1/2 an hour at recess and 1/2 at lunch is all that's required. If you are able to help be either recess or lunch or both. Either ring Marjan in the office or message us. Thanks.
Glen Dhu is open as normal tomorrow.
