Weigall Sports Canteen
The Sports Day on 20 March was a very busy day for everyone involved so a big thank you to all our volunteers for their time and for the delicious food donations. There will be plenty more opportunities to volunteer at our upcoming Saturdays at Weigall after the term break. Please check the SGSWA’s website if you are able to volunteer or donate food and feel free to stop buy if you are around.
The next Weigall Canteen Day is Saturday 11 May from 7.30-2.30pm. Please use the link below to sign up.

All donations of food are welcome. The link below will take you to a list where you can indicate what you will bring. It is not mandatory to use the list but it will help the volunteers with planning what items will be available on the day as well as give you an idea of what might be needed. A mix of sweet and savoury is always appreciated. Items can be homemade or store bought. Please drop off items after 7.00am at the Weigall Canteen and ensure that all containers that need to be returned are labelled with your name and mobile number.

We also have EFTPOS available on Saturdays at the canteen.
In support of the Grammar Green Team, you are encouraged to bring your own reusable cups for hot drinks. Sydney Grammar School reusable cups will be for sale at the Canteen. The first hot drink is free and you are encouraged to use the cups at future events.
