Thank you
Wanted - Mrs Steer is looking for a few large boxes for a dance performance for prize giving.   They need to be big enough that a child can fit inside.  If you can help please bring into the office. Thank you. 

ASB Banking day is Wednesday. Bring your banking into the office. If you would like to open a bank account please collect forms from the office.
