Thank you to all the families who baked and donated cakes, and to all the eager cake eaters after school! 

Earlier in the year, when the School Council met, they decided they wanted to invite an influential and motivational person into school.  Knowing that school budgets are being squeezed they set about organising the Cake Sale to raise funds.  Watch this space to see who is invited into school!
