A barrel of funds

Parents & Friends enjoyed a great year in 2017. Events and fundraising initiatives organised and facilitated by the group raised almost $38,000, not including the MakeNoise Festival which generated another $10,700.

Once again the Farmers’ Market was the standout, generating almost $18,000, while special lunches raised more than $4500. Various craft stalls raised an astonishing $8200, while the addition of children’s artwork calendars made almost $2000. Fundraising outcomes like this would not be possible without the huge contribution of volunteers from across the school. Thanks to everyone who gave time and/or resources to the effort in 2017.

The market was by far the biggest source of funds in 2017.

Some of the funds went towards a combination of books, goalpost pads, water tanks, extra lighting and the Connect Camp. Ongoing fundraising will be directed towards the new playground as part of the school rebuild.
