Football Frenzy Program - Term 2, 2016

At this stage we are unable to run the Football Frenzy program due to insufficient numbers, if we receive more interest in the future we will look to organise this again. 
Thank you for your interest and if you have any ideas for other activities that might appeal to more children let us know and we will investigate the options.
Justin and I planned to continue this activity by replacing it to CRICKET. This will be no extra cost for the families enrolled on Tuesdays afternoon.
Apology for this inconvenience this may cause.
