A Marian House update

While this year has presented several challenges for a minority of our students, it has been one of genuine excitement, and I have a strong sense there will be many more fantastic individual and group successes to follow...

We urgently need a P & F Working Bee Coordinator. The position is being temporarily covered by our immediate past president who finishes up at the end of the year. It involves working with the college maintenance team to coordinate general maintenance sessions throughout the year (dates set by school) as well as setting up for the athletics and swimming carnivals and Open Day.

You don't have to be a handyperson and will have volunteers and members of the maintenance team to help you. You'll also be given a full "on the job" rundown of what's involved.

If you have been part of the working bee team, please consider taking on this role - even for 12 months. If you are new to the school but don' t fancy coming to meetings or are only available weekends this could be a great introduction to the Parents & Friends. It's an ideal position for job sharing. For more information phone Deirdre Payne on 0438 054 192 or Peter Gough on 0409 010 162.
