Parents Council Fund-Raising Dinner

The Parents Council Fund-Raising Dinner is scheduled for Friday 15 January 2010 at the Montenotte Hotel.  It is hoped to have eight tables, one for each class in the Preparatory School.  Class representatives will be selling tickets from tomorrow onwards (fifty euro per ticket) and hope to sell a minimum of ten pairs per class group.  Tickets will be on sale in the school tomorrow, Friday from 12.30pm to 3.00pm.  Tickets will also be available at the Christmas Concert on Thursday next.

Money raised by the event will fund the painting of colourful patterns for games onto the school yard.  The work will be carried out by a company specialising in this kind of work.  The patterns will be chemically fixed to the yard surface and will be very durable.
