Extreme Reading Photograph Competition

In 2015 the school held an extreme reading photo competition. As part of this year’s book week, we are running the photo competition again.  The challenge is to have a photo of your child, or the whole family, reading a book in an unusual or ‘extreme’ situation. It could be related to the theme of book week or just an extreme situation.  Book weeks isn’t until Term 3, August 23, but we wanted to give you plenty of time, including the next holiday break, to capture something.  The Theme for this year is ‘Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds’

Please save the photo in the following format: ‘Firstname Lastname Cabin X’ to   Google Drive

The deadline for uploading pictures is Monday 23 August.  If you have any questions please contact Chris Smith.

This link to pictures from the last competition may give you some ideas!

QKR Payment App at ORPS – Payments made EASY!

ORPS are happy to promote and announce that we have now set up easy payments for parents and guardians using the QKR App (pronounced Quicker).  Please open and follow the instructions below to get started.

QKR App is very user friendly and allows payments to be made on any device and you can link your payments to a credit / debit card or straight from your savings account.  Once you have set up your account with your payment and child/ren details, payments can be made for all school excursions / incursions, special events and voluntary contributions.  Please note that all items will appear in the event menu regardless if your child is involved in that event or not so please read notes carefully to avoid paying for the incorrect item.
