Don't forget. Tomorrow is our Fun Run! All children
should have brought home a timetable for the day.
We have collected sponsor forms so that we can check,
before we order prizes. All classes have seen an
assortment of the prizes available.
If you have some spare time and would like to help out,
we would really appreciate any assistance.
Christmas Night is fast approaching. Our Christmas Night
will be in Week 8, on Tuesday, December 1st.
There will be a barbeque, and the program will start at
approximately 6.00 - 6.30pm. Programs will be sent home
closer to the event.
There will be a number of items -- this year, the Junior
Primary classes will be doing a nativity play, and other
classes will also be doing items. And, of course, we
will have the fireworks as the finale.
We will again have our big hamper raffle and information
will be coming home soon.
At our Junior Primary assembly on Tuesday, a number of

I heard this joke the other day:
What do you call a fat alien?
An Extra Cholesterol.
As you may know, this will be my last term here
at Happy Valley School. I've made the tough
choice to say goodbye and attend university next
year to study Human Movement and then
Physiotherapy. I hope to travel overseas once
my study is complete and work with aid relief
It has been a hard decision, but my time working
in this community has helped greatly to shape my
future. So thank you.
Even though I won't be here, a new CPSW will be
appointed for the start of next year. On
another sad note, next year will be the last
year of the government funding for CPSW's not
just in Happy Valley but across Australia. The
government hasn't agreed to continue the funding
yet and we need your help to tell them they
Please go to
www.smg.asn.au and click on the "We Need
Your Support" link. This will allow you to send
an email to our local MP, telling them of how
important this role is and why they should fight
to continue the funding.
On a brighter note, our chicken coop is finally
fox proof (fingers crossed) and we will have
some new chickens occupying it very soon.
