ST. TERESA'S SCHOOL AND PARISH FETE
The winner of the Smiggles Vouchers for the decorated cake boxes were David and Sophie. As you can see in the gallery of photos there were many varied decorated cake boxes. Thank you to all who entered and to our judge who surely had a most difficult task. The designs were wonderful and so much time was put into each cake box.
We were lucky to have such beautiful weather for the Fete. Coloured hair and decorated faces were seen running around all the stalls as they won chocolate, bunnies, water toys, the bikes on Bust A Balloon and many other wonderful prizes. There were smiles of delight when prizes were won on the Cent Sale and Goose Club Raffle.
People enjoyed buying some of the wonderful cakes for their smoko, baked with love and delightfully decorated. The smell of Anicia’s spring rolls, empanadas, noodles and fried rice, the tantalising steaks on the Bar-B-Que, tasty chicken rolls and hot dogs for the kiddies along with ice cream treats as well made for a taste experience beyond measure.
Our auction for the Framed Cowboys Jersey was purchased by Robbie. The student canvases were also auctioned off towards the end of the evening.
Congratulations to Petrece who has won a voucher compliments of the Ravenshoe Hotel to dine in their Restaurant. A draw took place of all the workers who ran stalls on the night.
The students have started training for our annual School Cross Country. Lots of huffs and puffs followed by heavy breathing as we tackle the exercises and running and lots of laughter as we share the joy of fresh air and sunshine.
Our Cross Country is on the last day of Term 1 Friday April 5. Students can wear their coloured joggers with their coloured shirts to represent their team.
Wattle is gold, Cedar is red, and Oak is green. Students score points for their team and at the end of the day points are tallied up and the shield is up for grabs.
Our 5, 6 & 7-year-old students will run on the school oval from 9.00am. 8, 9, 10, 11 & 12-year-old children will run from 9.30 at the Ravenshoe Footy Fields. We would really appreciate it if any parents can help with marshalling on the track. Please contact the office if you would like to be part of the fun.
Permission to walk to the Football grounds will be through the parent portal. Please look out for the email.
We will present medallions to first place runners and certificates for first to fourth in the Assembly area from 2.00pm.
