TRAINING THIS WEEKEND
There is no training this weekend for the U6 and U7 who are playing in the JRCS Mini tournament at Centaurs, Turf City, from 8:00am on Saturday.
There is also no training for the U13 who are away playing in a JRCS League game, and the U15 who have a JRCS game at Dempsey directly after Academy training finishes.
KEEPING DEMPSEY GREEN
In order to make a little contribution to being green, we have told the SCC that we no longer need paper/plastic cups provided with the water containers pitch side. All the children should have their own water bottles that they can refill. May we ask that parents to also bring their own bottles.
THE BIG BAKE SALE! SATURDAY 23rd FEBRUARY
This is our annual big bake sale where we ask you to bake and buy some cakes and biscuits to raise money for The Cararoo Foundation, supporting disadvantaged children in Manila through education and activities, like rugby. We usually do this bake sale before Christmas but last term was very busy and we delayed it till now. PLEASE BRING CAKES TO SELL AND TREAT YOUR KIDS AFTER TRAINING. This event relies on your generosity and we send all the profits to Cararoo. Also on sale will be some SCC Academy new socks (all sizes, $15) and some old stock T shirts and hats sold at very cheap prices, (all money from this older stock will go to Cararoo). The Bake Sale is on Saturday 23rd February – a WEEK ON SATURDAY – not this Saturday coming!

THE FRY GROUP TAX WORKSHOP: PLANNING A MOVE TO THE UK
If you think you will probably move to the UK at some point, it is worth getting a sense of the tax and financial issues involved. In the midst of packing, address changes, leaving parties and general arrangements, it is easy to overlook sensible financial planning and there is potentially a lot of tax to be saved.
Find out how you can plan ahead at this workshop.
