Daffodil Funds raised - $412.50 - Thank you everyone!!

The sun says hello
To the new burst of yellow.

The last glimpse of snow starts to disappear,
And rises up into the atmosphere.

As the breeze starts prancing,
The flowers start dancing.

They make the garden sing,
At the start of spring.

Coast Netball Tournament

Great competition at Edith hopper park on 11th August. Although we didn't make the semis, both teams gave great effort and tried their best. Some incredible wins, losses and draws to learn from and grow in the skills they have begun. It was awesome to see new and recurring players and to see them shine.
