MARCH Dear Parents,
WINNING Last week the P&C Association pleaded with parents to support the Meat Tray
TICKET Raffles at the Station Hotel on Friday nights. Money raised from the sale of tickets
NO 14 on these evenings is used to fund buses for school camps and excursions. Our
Fiona teachers have organised and planned the school camps for Years 3, 5 and 7
Whittington students this year. Year 3 students will travel to Forrest Beach, Year 5 students to
Darradgee and Year 7 students will camp at Tinaroo. As you know, Tinaroo and
Darradgee are quite a distance from our school and the cost of running a bus to
HOTEL and from these venues is expensive, however the camps have proven an
FRIDAY NIGHT excellent experience for our students in past years. Please support the Friday
RAFFLES night raffles as your assistance gives all children the opportunity to participate in a
This Friday very worthwhile learning experience out of the school environment.
