School Bulb Fundraiser

Dear Parents

The P&C Bulb fundraiser has been extended to Monday 23 March.  Please return your forms to the front office.  Payment can be made directly into the P&C account, details are attached to the order form.

If you would like further information or you have any questions please email the P&C

A message from the P&C

A unique feature of NAPLAN 2014 is that Year 9 students sitting the test sat the first ever NAPLAN in 2008 as Year 3 students. Parents have been able to see the development of their child over time and track their child’s performance compared with the national average.

ACARA is actively seeking parents or carers with children in Year 9, who have positive stories to tell about how they have been able to use NAPLAN data over the three test periods . We would like to be able to provide those parents’ names to the media and will support them to tell their story. They may appear in the press about the benefits of NAPLAN to them and their child.

If you can help us with any contacts, please contact Robyn Ziino


If you are finishing with Stromlo High School uniforms you could donate them to be reused.

If they are in good, clean condition would you mark them in a bag “used uniforms for resale” and leave them at student services.

The P&C will sell them at school the day that books are collected at the end of January.

If a Parent has time to oversee this day’s sale please contact Jenny on

Thank you.
