The HUGE William Carey Fun Fair is Back - March 29

The biggest and best fair in South West Sydney is on again - Stallholders start from 9am - 3pm and rides from 10am.

Call the school on 9608 2277 to book your DISCOUNTED armbands - $25 if you call us anytime up to 3pm on Friday 28th. Ask for "Armband Sales at the Uniform Shop" and they will take your credit card payment over the phone. Armbands are available for collection on the day at the Information Booth near the spot school tours depart, follow the signs on site.

Can't pre-purchase? Then $30 for 5 hours of thrills for the children is still great value. Buy your armband on the day at the Joylands ticket booth. 19 rides to give enjoyment for all the family.

Wander the stalls, enjoy the entertainment.  Perhaps place a bid on the silent auction, browse the White Elephant stall for a lost treasure or buy a cake for supper (but get in early - they really do sell like hot cakes!). Browse the community displays or sit down for a Devonshire Tea in the school cafe.  Hot food is available at realistic prices thanks to our legion of family supporters and The Outback Steakhouse.

Interested in helping out with sponsorship? It's never too late to support a good cause.  Email pr@wccs.nsw.edu.au

We look forward to seeing you at the fair!

Primary Students Helping Build a Bridge: An Update

Monday 21st October, 2013

On the last day of term two, students brought in coins to be stuck onto sheets of cardboard that were used to cover a wooden bridge set up in the hall  for the final assembly of the term. An amount of $929.80 was raised on the day. The weight of the coins on the wire that was strung to represent part of the bridge was so heavy, the wire broke under the stress. This was a great sign showing the generosity of the students to support this cause.

WCCS continues to raise money for a bridge to span a river in the Maphutseng valley of Lesoto. The bridge is needed to cross the  river to get to school.  In the wet season, the river becomes dangerous to cross and students cannot get to school or have to sleep in the school overnight if the river rises during the day when they are at school.  This project, which is being shared between WCCS and Georges River Grammar School, is an ongoing partnership between the schools here in Australia and the community in the Maphutseng Valley.

 

Smoke and Asthma Alert

Monday, 21st October, 2013

Does your child suffer from Asthma? If so, parents should ensure your child comes to school with their Asthma medication.  Asthma Puffers are best administered using a spacer which will get more medication into their lungs.  Remember the School Clinic will assist your child to take their medication correctly.

Michele Goldman, CEO of the Asthma Foundation NSW says, “while fire can damage property and threaten life, it can also seriously affect the health of people with medical conditions, especially those who live with asthma. Wood smoke is a prime trigger for what could be a potentially fatal asthma attack.
