Hats should be submitted to the uniform shop with pre-payment (cash, cheque, or credit card details), and a completed Hat Repair payment form, no later than 3.00 pm on Thursday 11 September. Our external supplier will not accept your hat for repair without pre-payment to the shop. A general price guide is:
Junior hat clean – $12.00
Akubra or white hat basic clean (includes reblocking and stiffening) – $20.00

Hats will be returned to students at the beginning of Term 4, and students will be issued with a hat exemption card that requires them to wear their sport hat during the repair period. A hat repair payment form is attached. For further information, please contact the uniform shop on 3286 0223 or uniformshop@redlands.qld.edu.au

P&F Father’s Day Stall on Friday

The stall will be open for business at 8:00 am and will close at 2:00 pm.  The only year levels invited to shop BEFORE SCHOOL are Year 3 (due to their excursion) and Middle and Senior School students.  All other Junior School classes will be brought to the stall by their teachers throughout the day.  Middle and Senior School students are also welcome to come and shop during both breaks. Items range from 50c to $9.  Junior School students, please bring your money in a zip-lock bag with your name and class written on, and please give it to your teacher for safe keeping.  We’ve had a great response from volunteer parents and friends, but if you would like to pop in to help throughout the day, you are most welcome to!  Thanks, Emma Lombard elombard@bigpond.net.au

Thanks to Performance Music Supporters’ Group

“A heartfelt thanks to all who assisted with preparations for the St John’s Concert.  As the saying goes, many hands make light work, and the teamwork displayed in planning and co-ordinating the event was exceptional.  The supper table looked so pretty and was covered in beautifully presented treats which were all sold!  Funds raised for the Performance Music Department were in the vicini2014 Final Concert in the Cathedral Posterty of $300.  Thank you once again for supporting the music students.  If you didn’t make it to the Concert in the Cathedral this year, you should ensure it’s on your list of “must-dos” for 2015.”
