FUNdraising and community events are what we do best and it provides most of the funds that we use to give back to the school. Getting involved is also a great opportunity to meet other parents and carers here at school and we usually ask only a little of your time for each event.
This year we endeavoured to hold our Colour Fun Run which was delayed due to a snap lockdown in March. Great news though! A new date has been announced for our Colour Fun Run, Thursday 7th October. The Go fund me page will close on Friday 25th June and we will announce the winners who raised the most money in early term 3.
Our Mother’s and Carer’s day stall that we held in May was a cracking affair. Over 3000 gifts walked out the door and we raised nearly $6,000. Thankyou to all the parent helpers who and made the day really special.
Next on our FUNdraising agenda is annual extreme shopping event, our Father’s and Carer’s day stall. The FUNdraising crew are getting busy sourcing some amazing gifts for the children to purchase. The stall will be on Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd of September. A class roster will be sent out before hand so you will know in advance which day your child/children will be attending. Keep and eye out for the mailchimp calling out for helpers.
Our spring event this year has changed from a Fiesta to a Movie Night. Why? The March lockdown showed us how quickly things can change and we have decided not to invest a heap of time and resources into something that could be cancelled at the last minute. So we are going for a smaller community event with a movie night on Friday 10th September. The Movie will be announced soon and a callout for helpers to get it all happening will be going out right after.
Plans are getting into place for the WEcreate Art show in October. As usual the P&C will be organising the food trucks and the cold drinks to keep all the masses happy. We will be showcasing some of the P&C activities and promoting all the good that we do.
We are really hoping that we will be able to hold our signature event, Fiesta, next year and we are already getting some themes and plans in place. We are looking at completely refreshing the whole fiesta and would love the input of parents and children alike. Got a great idea? Come along to one of our meetings or shoot us an email.
We are holding regular FUNdraising meetings every second Wednesday mornings from 9am in the OSHC multipurpose room. Please join us to help plan our future events. toddlers and babies welcome and sometimes we have cake.
