It’s a wrap!
Well the OWPS Community Festival is finished for 2019! Thank you to all in the community who joined us for another great weekend. The weather was fantastic and it was wonderful to see all the families making use of the new adventure playground area which was part funded by the Festival.
It certainly looked like everyone was enjoying themselves and we’re thrilled to announce that the 2019 OWPS Community Festival raised over $41,000 which will go straight back to the school. More information on how previous funds have been spent can be found below.
Thanks from all of us!
A special thanks to all the OWPS families, teachers and staff who volunteered, the local businesses who contributed to our raffle, silent auction, outdoor entertainment and market stalls and of course to our Sponsors. Many support us year after year and we are all so grateful for your contributions. The benefits to our school are there for all to see in the facilities we’ve been able to fund. Make sure you connect with us on Facebook to keep updated.
We look forward to seeing you again next year.
