Annual Community Meeting – Principal’s Report



Art’s Farewell Assembly

Art’s Farewell Assembly will be held next Thursday 1st December at 9.00am. Each year level have been working on something special to present to Mr Lombardi at this Assembly. The choir will be performing and Mr Coniglio will return to say a few words. Art’s family and other VIP’s will be in attendance and we invite all St Columba’s parents to come along and wish Art well.

Please note that parking around the school will be at a premium and there is availability at the Bayswater Bowling Club. Please be respectful of our neighbours and only park in marked bays and not blocking driveways or footpaths. The Rangers may be around to fine people who park illegally. There will be some car bays on Roberts St designated to VIP’s. Seating will also be reserved for VIP’s.

We hope you will be able to join us to celebrate Mr Lombardi.

All money raised from these events are to purchase the new playground equipment.

The CSPWA bank details are below and can be used at anytime to pay online for fundraisers or for contributions. We ask that you include a family name in the description so that we can allocate funds coming into the account
