Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!

The grand total for this year’s Parents and Friends fundraising efforts is almost $50,000.

This amazing total includes:

  • $25,000 raised by the farmers market
  • $8000 raised by the Make.Noise Festival, and
  • $18,000 raised by end of month lunches, craft and cake stalls, the Bunnings barbecue and other fundraising activities – this includes $1300 raised at last week’s fabulous Christmas stall.

With this money, Parents and Friends was able to purchase new basketball rings, sponsor one of our students and support other school events such as the Family Maths Night last term.

The remainder of the money will be put towards other school projects including new sun shades over the deck outside the multipurpose room.

We would like to thank each and every parent who attended our meetings, coordinated events, created beautiful craft, baked delicious cakes and slices, prepared and served food at the canteen, Twilight Sports or Bunnings barbecue, staffed the stalls, cooked sausages and pancakes or volunteered their time in any other way – as you can see, your efforts have made a huge difference (and hopefully, for the most part, was mostly a chance for a chat and laugh with other parents!).

Next year there will be classroom volunteer coordinators to help maintain parent involvement levels as the school. But don’t worry, there will still be plenty of other ways to be involved.

 

See you next year – and don’t forget to buy some Ecostore soap from the school office to make sure you have a clean and sweet-smelling festive season!
