Zim Day (Thursday 14th March)
Our new look Zim Day will be held on Thursday 14th March. It will consist of a monster cake sale and raffle. Tickets for the raffle will go on sale on Thursday 7th March priced at 50c each. There will be at least one winner in each class. We are calling on all bakers to provide us with delicious cakes, buns and treats for our cake sale. We know we can depend on your support. All money raised will go to Assisi High School, Nharia, Zimbabwe.
Please note that the school will be closed for pupils on Friday, 15th March (the day following Zim Day) to facilitate the introduction of the revised language curriculum as required by the Department of Education.
Last call for next year. If you have not returned the form you received or know of someone wishing to enrol, please contact the school immediately. Thank you.
