Fall Fete is Saturday, October 13th, 2018 (10:00am – 2:00pm)…less than 1 week away!

We still need 150+ volunteers to have all areas of this HUGE FUNDRAISER running in full force!  We need kitchen staff and and BBQ staff to ensure that we can feed the masses! We need many more volunteers to run the GAMES!

Kub Kar Update

Dear All,
The response to the Kub Kars has been amazing, and the coming Stem Night at the school on Thursday the 21st promises to be a bigger hit than last year, with plenty of areas to keep minds young and old active!
If you were planning on making your own Kub Kar racer for the night, then we have bad news and even better news – The Kars have been going so fast from the front desk, that we have had difficulty keeping up. At the moment we have run out, but don’t worry, another order for Kars has been placed and will be with us soon.
More news to follow as soon as we get them!
See you on Thursday!
The STEM Volunteer Parents.
If you have any questions about the cars then please Email: adam_noble@yahoo.com
