Boneo Buzz: 10th November

We are delighted to extend our deepest gratitude to each and every one of you who contributed to the resounding success of our Oaks Day event. It was a day filled with elegance, laughter, and the spirit of generosity.

With your incredible support, we are thrilled to announce that we raised an impressive $10,500 during the Oaks Day festivities. This outstanding achievement would not have been possible without the collective efforts of our dedicated community members, and we are truly humbled by your commitment to our school.

The atmosphere on Oaks Day was nothing short of spectacular, with everyone dressed beautifully, showcasing an array of fascinators and embracing the full spirit of a race day. It was a joyous occasion that brought our community together in a celebration of unity and support for our shared goals. A special acknowledgment and heartfelt thanks go to Amanda Swayn, whose meticulous coordination ensured that the event ran seamlessly. Amanda’s dedication and hard work were instrumental in making the day a memorable success.

Additionally, we would like to express our sincere appreciation to all our sponsors who generously contributed to the event. Your support played a crucial role in achieving our fundraising goal and will directly benefit our school community. We will purchase new computers for our school. This investment in technology will undoubtedly enhance the learning experience for our students and contribute to their academic success.

I am excited to announce that Ms Stacey Brown has decided to withdraw her leave and will now be in Year 4 for 2024.
