On the first morning after the call went out, donations of goods began to appear under the Christmas tree in the school foyer. The pile grew steadily each day until the corner of the foyer was filled. James from the Dandenong branch of St. Vincent de Paul Society said these items will make a difference to those in need this Christmas and be gratefully received. We thank everyone who contributed, and the volunteers from St. Vincent de Paul who will be distributing the goods over the coming weeks.
>> Advent Wreath Making
A group of Harkaway mothers enjoyed a wreath making workshop hosted by Jane O’Connor. Jane runs the Maker’s Table, which runs creative workshops for women. The workshop was a chance to enjoy each other’s company while creating wreaths for the season of Advent from fresh foliage and flowers.
>> Theme parks in 3/4 Boys
Each class in the school enjoyed paying a visit to 3/4 Boys this week to see the results of their theme park project. Students were able to ask about the student’s designs and the process of creating their theme park. Now that they are complete, students will take home their finished work. Well done boys!

>> Cross Country
Despite the threat of rain, the Cross Country event went ahead in the afternoon and was enjoyed by all. Competitors were cheered on by supporters and plenty of team spirit was in the air. Congratulations to all students who competed and showed perseverance and sportsmanship on the day. Thank you to those parents who helped on the day and to Mr Tilley and Penelope Eltman for their work in organising this event. The school community raised $6500, which is a tremendous effort.
