The Hastings PAC organizes, supports and runs several events during the course of the school year.

Urban Safari Online Field Trip

Thursday Jun 18 at 11am | Online

Friday Jun 19 at 1.30pm | Online

Your Hastings PAC would like to invite you to celebrate the end of the school year by joining us on MS Teams for an online field trip by Urban Safari Rescue Society, an animal rescue society that specializes in rescuing and caring for exotic animals.

This non-profit organization has in their care a myriad of animals such as lizards, flying squirrels, snakes, tarantulas, cool bugs…

While their location is closed to the public during COVID19, Urban Safari Rescue is offering online versions of their school presentations, and your Hastings PAC has set up two opportunities to join in using TEAMs.

There is room for 100 online participants for each session, so please limit your household login to one device, and make sure it’s a big enough screen to see the animals!

Login details are as follows:

Family Bingo Night

The PAC would like to thank all of the families that came out to Bingo night. It was an excellent turnout - the event could not sustain itself without this kind of support. Another big thank you also goes out to the wonderful volunteers that helped roll out the evening - and to Boffo Developments for their generous donation toward the Bingo prizes. We are also very grateful to everyone that contributed individual prize donations - THANK YOU!!

Not only was it a fun-filled event, but the PAC managed to raise about $650 after expenses! These funds go into the operating budget and help fund initiatives that benefit the students and teachers at Hastings.
