What is the Trivia Night’s theme in 2018?
This year our theme is ‘Night at the Movies so come dressed in your most creative movie/actor/actress inspired costume. The costume element to Trivia Night is serious business, so be sure to dress up to be in the running to win Best Costume.

I’d love to go but I don’t have a table to join, what should I do?
Check with your class parent as he/she may be putting together a table. Or, check with other parents in your class, they may also be looking for a table. Otherwise you can book a table and the P&C team will allocate you to table that is looking for extras – a great way to meet new friends!
