Harbour Fish Fund Raiser
6 Jun 2024

Thank you for your orders for fish from Harbour Fish.  We have a small issue with some orders that have been paid online into the school bank account.  We don't recognise the names used and we don't have an order form.  If you paid into the school bank account can you please make sure that you have sent an order form to school (this can be a photo of the order form, or an email to tell us what you want to order)?  Presently we have three deposits into the school bank account that we can't line up with orders and we don't recognise the names used. 

You can ring the office (03 4728685) or email (office@portchalmers.school.nz) to check.
