Celebrating Palmyra Primary School's Centenary in 2013

What a wonderful day!

Thousands came and it was just so lovely. We were blown away! The chatting and catching up just didn’t stop the whole time, from the Legacy Poppy cafe  at the start to the band and dancing in evening.

It was hot! But under an awning of Pally bunting, and classrooms full of wonderful memorabilia, everyone came and celebrated.

The committee and the school volunteers worked just so hard, producing a wonderful book and thinking through everything in the lead up  and  producing a really special day.

I was proud to be involved in helping write some of the book, manage the blog and email and work at the book stall on the day. ( I was exhausted but happily by the end  of it !).

We would love to hear if any of our blog followers came and  enjoyed their time.

These are Tomaz’  photos from the day…. for those that couldn’t make it.

‘Our Pally’ Centenary Book

Don’t miss the official launch of our centenary book at the opening ceremony, 3.30pm Saturday 9th November!

COLLECT YOUR PRE-ORDERED BOOKS

Contrary to advice in the previous school newsletter, we are encouraging everyone to collect their pre-ordered books on the day*

How could you possibly wait any longer???!

A collection point will be operating alongside the tea/coffee/cake stand at the main entrance to the Art/Music Building, following the Opening Ceremony.
*This is unless you have arranged otherwise with Hollie Cavanagh, dhcav@iinet.net.au /0407307462 or will not be attending and will be picking up directly from the school.

BOOKS WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

So, if you haven’t yet ordered your copy, come and grab one (or more!) – it’s the most perfect Christmas present, for family and friends and the best possible memento of our beautiful school.

CASH AND CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS ACCEPTED

Preorder your book this Sunday at the Pally markets

This Sunday – Pally Markets

This Sunday 22 September at the school from 8.30 to midday the Western Farmers Markets will be hosting a Happiness Harvest themed market to welcome in Spring.

Come along for all your veggies, but we’ll also be having a stall where we’ll be doing presales of the Centenary book. Having just finished proof reading it, it’s just fantastic and you’ll be blown away by all 173 pages of it!

At $45 per copy it makes a perfect Christmas present!

If you can’t make the markets, you can still preorder online at https://pallyis100.wordpress.com/book/
