The PTFA ran another successful Gala, which made a profit of over $13,000. This will go toward projects that our boys will benefit from. Thank you to Julia Stuart and her team for all their hard work, our sponsors for their generosity in supporting the school and the staff for their involvement with the Gala. We could not have had such a worthwhile fundraising event without the commitment and support of these people Thank you also to the Liston College community for your support and for coming along on the day.

Parent Teacher Interviews
Thank you to the parents who made arrangements to book interviews with the teachers to discuss their son or student in care's progress. If you were unable to make it to the night, please do contact your son's Dean or teachers by email. Email addresses can be found on the College App and on our website.

Mother and Son High Tea
A highly anticipated new venture this year, is the Mother and Son High Tea. This will be held on Saturday 13 May at 2.30pm here at the College. We do hope you are able to attend this special event where mothers, grandmothers, aunts or any significant females in your son's life will be treated to an afternoon of indulgence. Full information will be advised at the beginning of Term 2.

Field Development
The work on improving the field - stage 2 - has now been completed. We look forward to using the new and improved field.

Don't forget to order your Entertainment book. Sales of the books benefit Liston College and are a great source of discounts for the whole family. You can order these through the link in this newsletter.
