We are proud of the fact that each year we sponsor three people to be a part of the Circus Quirkus which is hosted by WA Police and Community Youth Centres (PCYC). Circus Quirkus is an eclectic and entertaining mix of Circus acts which provides an unforgettable experience for special needs and disadvantaged children, their carers, and their families.
This enables the delivery of inclusive and sustainable youth programs and activities that contribute to healthier, happier, and safer communities across WA.
In partnership with the WA Police Force, PCYC provides a safe environment for young people, including those at-risk, to develop new skills and be engaged in diversionary programs and recreational activities, as an alternative to engaging in anti-social behaviour.
Welcome back to the school banking program for Term 3.
We hope everyone enjoyed a happy and safe holiday break with their families.
Rewards Program update:
In Term 3, two new reward items from our Polar Savers range become available to redeem: Arctic Owl Fluffy Keyring and Scratch Art Cards.
We also have in stock a number of reward items from previous years that are still available for students to redeem including a Handball, Sparkle Glitter Pens, Zoom Flying Disc, Heat Reactor Pencils and Glow Light.
All the best to everyone for a wonderful term ahead.
