Direct Appeal

We’re working to streamline the donation process this year and integrate with the new VSB school cash system and so that’s led to a short delay. You’ll be receiving an email from us soon as we launch this year’s Direct Appeal campaign.


PAC Meeting

Our first meeting of the year will be on Tuesday 24 September at 7pm in the school library. There is free babysitting and refreshments will be on hand.  

Please join us and share your thoughts and ideas.


Scholastic Book Fair

Scholastic Book Fair coming soon – Oct 9 and 10 – all proceeds stay in the school.  Questions or offers of help to Janice Johnson at jj0656@gmail.com.


Monsters Ball

Save the date, Monsters Ball will be on 23 October from 5:30 to 7:30pm. More details and request for parent volunteers coming soon.


Possible school bus service for families living further away

Lynch Bus Lines, is one of the biggest providers for group transportation mainly for school children. There is an opportunity for Lynch Bus Lines to start a ’school run’ for Trafalgar School students, if enough families are interested.

This would be an annual commitment but could be paid monthly. The rate would depend on the number of children taking the bus and can range from as low as $100 per child per month to $400/$500 per child per month, if fewer families join. 

These fees include return journeys, but one ways may also be arranged, though not guaranteed. 

Further details such as pick up points and exact routes served will be available later. Spots are limited and will be available on a first come first serve basis.

For further information or to express interest, please get in touch with Eman – ammiiee@gmail.com.
