School Ferry Update
Last Newport school run Friday afternoon 16 December 2011

This is just a quick note for the Newport school kids and their parents regarding the last school run of 2011, this Friday afternoon the 16 December.

Last Newport school run Friday afternoon 16 December 2011.

Note for all parents and especially year 6 families. In the past we have run the old ferry Kuringai as a special way of farewelling the end of the school year but particularly the fabulous year 6 darlings who are off to high school next year. The Kuringai has been gone for several years now but we would like to run the L.Duck  for this special run.offshore

Parents of all the Newport kids are welcome to come along and bring party foods and drinks if you wish.

The L.Duck departs Church Point at 3.20pm, Bells, Carols, perhaps Eastern if the flag is out, then over to Newport public wharf to collect the children at 3.45pm approx. Parents can hop on from Newport wharf if it suits after seeing the year 6 famous Newport school farewell (bring your tissues)

Love to see everyone on the ferry on Friday afternoon.

Best wishes to everyone for a very Merry Christmas and happy and safe New Year and good luck in high school year 6 !

Enjoy the school holidays kids-see you on the water..

Lots of love Penny, Carrie, Roz, Kath and Alison.
