Trivia night success

The inaugural Parents & Friends trivia night was a huge success raising $5400 for the school. Parents & Friends would like to thank all the families who attended as well as the volunteers who made it all possible, particularly Jenny Dun who spent countless hours calling, cajoling and coaxing local businesses to donate to the event. Thanks, too, to Trist, James and Lewis for hosting the event. The following is a list of businesses which donated, many of them school parents.
