MILLMERRAN SHEEP RACES
The race has been run, the sheep have returned to the paddock to begin their "off season" training in preparation for next years' big race and our organising committee are resting up after another great event. I would like to thank everyone who gave up their time to help put this great event together. From set up to pack up and everything in between, your efforts are greatly appreciated. Special thanks goes to the Sheep Races Committee for all of their time and dedication this year. The event had a great atmosphere and the day ran well. Thanks again.
Week 4 of Term 4 will be Book Week and Book Fair for 2014! The Dress Up Parade will be on at 9.00am, on Tuesday 28th October. There will be a prize for the Best Dressed child in each year level. This will be a voucher worth $15, to the Book Fair, so the winners will be able to select their own book. Costumes for the Parade should be of characters from books – even Super Heroes and Ninja Turtles were originally comic book characters. The Book Fair will run from 8.30 – 9.15 am, and 2.30 – 3.15pm Tuesday to Friday, 28th – 31st October. Items range in price from $1 - $25, with most between $6 - $15. The library receives a percentage of sales from the Book Fair, so please support us if you are able. It's a great opportunity to purchase some Christmas presents early.
