The Jer­ilderie Pub­lic School P&C has been work­ing hard this year sell­ing tick­ets for their ma­jor raf­fle of a John Deere Gator (Side by Side ve­hi­cle).

The raf­fle is draw­ing to a close with the win­ner to be an­nounced at pre­sen­ta­tion night on De­cem­ber 17.

There is still time to buy those last min­utes tick­ets to be in the draw.

Tick­ets are avail­able from P&C mem­bers, or at the school of­fice.

Thanks have been ex­pressed to ev­ery­one who has sup­ported this raf­fle.

A num­ber of St Joseph’s Year 5/6 stu­dents re­ceived the sacra­ment of Con­fir­ma­tion on Sun­day.

Fa­ther Blaise Kurek ad­min­is­tered the sacra­ment at the 10.30am mass, at­tended by a large num­ber of fam­i­lies and par­ish­ioners.

A de­li­cious morn­ing tea was shared in the out­side cov­ered area af­ter the cer­e­mony.

Be­cause St Joseph’s Catholic School will be hold­ing a Staff De­vel­op­ment day at the school on Mon­day Novem­ber 12, stu­dents will have the day off.

As a mat­ter of in­ter­est, due to dif­fi­cul­ties in get­ting enough peo­ple who can help with wood­cut­ting, gather­ing and work­ing for the cause, the Com­bined Schools Fete looks like be­ing a thing of the past.

Both schools are now think­ing out­side the square to raise funds.
