A huge thank you goes to our Book Fair team lead by Amy Cochran, Vanitha Perumal and London Liebengood. This year was our most successful book fair ever with lots of excited students, many books donated to teacher classrooms, and money raised for the Hollymead library. Thank you also to Nicole Dunn, who graciously coordinated the Bingo Night and Bake Sale during Bingo Night at the Book Fair.

Many thanks to all of the families who supported these events, the teachers who helped call our bingo numbers, and to the many volunteers who gave their time and energy to help throughout the week. It takes a lot of volunteers to make these events happen and we really appreciated everyone chipping in.
