This Saturday, 1st November is the Big Day Gala Update No:8

This Saturday, 1st November is the Big Day - the one that we have been working so hard to make a success of! We hope to see all of you here and please invite all your friends and family who aren't at GHS. The more the merrier and the better our fundraising will be!
Please can you bring in any clean plastic shopping bags and empty ice cream containers with lids to be used at the gala. Please drop them at the front office. Thanks
At the Gala, all of the games will be run using tickets rather than cash. Tickets can be bought at the ticket booths which will be in the centre of the field. Please make sure you bring lots of cash with you! There will also be lots of yummy food available so make a day of it and have plan to have lunch here whilst watching and listening to some live entertainment. You will also be able to pick up a bargain at the clothing stall, White Elephant stall, book stall, toy stall and the plant stall.
We will have a Cash Out Eftpos stand available, minimum $20.00 but to avoid long queues please try and bring cash.
