Each year the Ellenvale Elves help out families from our community at Christmastime. This year we would love to have your help! There will be a donation box located in the office where we will collect spare change. If you can, please send your child in with a small monetary donation to help our cause. Thank you so much for your support and in helping out our Ellenvale community.
Many thanks to the parent who donated a tree to the school. It is looking very festive in our front hallway!
