Thank you: A special thank you to Morningside Shopping Centre for the wonderful sponsorship of the poster frames around campus. These will be put to great use.

Pre Prep Mums’ Breakfast: Thank you to all those mums who worked so hard to organise this function which was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. There was a wonderful sense of community which epitomised the familial spirit which Grayston espouses.

Lunchbox donations: We thank all those who participated in our drive for lunchbox donations last week. The response was phenomenal and we really appreciate your support in our outreach endeavours.
