Junior School Production

Congratulations to the cast and crew of the Junior School Production, The Little Mermaid, who thrilled us with their colourful and polished performances last weekend. It was clear that all involved gave their very best and the audiences certainly appreciated everything about the show. We know that it is these kinds of experiences that girls will remember long into their adult lives and we are confident that the skills of teamwork, adaptability, persistence and performance that they have gained will serve them well in the future. Thank you to all for your participation in and support of this wonderful venture. A special commendation to the team of parents who worked tirelessly in support of the Production Team to create the wonderful costumes – they were a visual spectacular!

Twilight Festival 

This week I am dusting off my wetsuit in preparation for next Friday’s dunk tank experience at the Twilight Festival. I hope that you are all making your own preparations as we work towards this incredibly significant event in support of the School. I urge you to make this week the week that you ensure you have done the following: 

  • Put the date in your diary and committed to attend! 
  • Pre-purchased wrist bands for your daughter, her siblings and her friends! 
  • Returned your raffle tickets. 
  • Collected a plate and planned your baking for the cake stall. 
  • Signed up to help on a stall. 
  • Brought in your second hand toys and books. 

Carefully read all the information that has been sent out by your PFA Committee. We count on EVERY family to support this event which is run by parents for our School. Please take the time to confirm your involvement this week! 

Vale Fred Hyde 

This week we were saddened to learn of the passing of Mr Fred Hyde, founder of the CO-ID organisation through which we have the connection with our school in Bangladesh. Fred often visited Lowther Hall during the 1990s and helped to establish the Mainnudin School, which we still support through our casual clothes days each term. Last year Fred was Queensland Senior Citizen of the Year and won the Australian ANZAC Peace Prize. His legacy will live on.
