Welcome from the P&C
A very warm welcome to all families who are new to the school this year and to all returning families. We’d love for you to get involved with the school community, so if you would like to be informed about P&C events and meetings or would like to know how you can get involved, please subscribe to our mailing list at http://eepurl.com/cXWaEX or join our Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/fortstreethighschoolpandc/

Year 7 Welcome at Petersham Bowling Club
Save the date, all year 7 families are invited to a welcome event at Petersham Bowling Club on Friday April 3rd at 6:30pm. Keep an eye out for the invitation email with more details.

Library Opening
We hope that everyone who attended the opening of the stunningly refurbished library had an enjoyable evening.
Thank you to the parents and teachers who did so much work on the night to make the event a success.
A sincere thank you also to all those who contributed to our Library Furniture/Murals/Plants collection. The P&C raised $1894.50 from this and we’re especially looking forward to seeing lots of plants decorating this space.

As requested at the general meeting, we are on the lookout for parents and carers who may be interested in helping us apply for grants for school projects or anyone with innovative ideas on how to raise funds from outside the school community. Please email us at fortstreethighschool@pandcaffiliate.org.au if you are interested in this.
