Thank you for coming along to the Knees Up on Friday (9th December 2016) and making the evening so special - wonderful weather we had too!

We had a few technical issues playing our thank you to our sponsors presentation at the Knees Up itself, so please do view all the wonderful businesses who supported us.  Many of these are local so please now in turn support them :)

Friends of Normandale School would also like to say a big THANK YOU to the school community for their support this year.  We have managed to raise over $11,000 which is wonderful.  This has meant we have been able to donate the money to the school to pay for the swimming pool cover and labour needed to install it correctly.

Get Bidding - Auction open NOW and WOW - more than 35 items on offer!
