FEES 2014 UPDATE
We detected some minor errors in the 2014 fees schedule attached to the last newsletter. We attached the correct schedule to the hardcopy newsletter. Apologies for confusion caused.

FORMAL TICKETS
Formal tickets are on sale at the Front Office for $45 each. The Office is also the place to book your table/s.

P.S. Why not take a look at the Yr 12 muck-up photo while you're buying your tickets? Cost = $15 (to be paid upfront upon ordering).

KINDER 2014 ORIENTATION
Friday 22 November

Parents who have enrolled children for Kindergarten 2014 should have already received notification of this special day in the info pack sent home.

Please take particular note of which orientation group (morning/afternoon) your child is in, and the dates of Readiness testing.

TRANSITION TO KINDER 2014
This week, parents of children enrolled in the Transition to Kindy Programme for 2014 will receive their Transition to Kindy Handbooks and a letter explaining the days their children have been allocated for the programme.

TIME TO START THINKING
Once again, we are preparing to print our annual SCC Trade & Business Directory.

Want to be involved? Interested in getting information about your trade or business OUT into the SCC community?

If so, simply fill out the special response slip attached to the hardcopy newsletter and return it before Friday 22 November. Thanks!

P.S. If you were in this year's directory and you would like your entry to stand again for next year, simply call the Office (66 242711).

If you would like to purchase an official SCC school bag with logo, contact our Librarian Joanne Parnell or the Office.

There are two ways to make your uniform purchases on these days:

*Have your child try uniforms on, pay and take home; OR
*Have your child try uniforms on, with the items packaged and stored at the Front Office for you. You can then pay and collect during the holidays, or just prior to the start of school.

Our Uniform Shop is the only place in town where you can purchase our uniforms. Some second-hand uniforms also available.

NOW: NATIONAL OTHERS WEEK
3-9 November 2013
By Mrs McKee

"NOW" is about looking beyond ourselves and bringing kindness to others. Find a way to help someone, whether it's a random act of kindness or a planned activity to show you care.

Next week, our whole school is going to be participating because LIFE IS A TEAM SPORT!

"Only a life lived for others is a life worth living"
Albert Einstein
