FUNDS RAISED IN 2017…
Last year’s event raised over $43,000 for our school, continuing the significant contribution this Festival makes to helping our kids. 2017 had a special focus on directly supporting our teachers in the classroom. Teachers’ Classroom Hampers were filled from the teachers’ wishlists and included board games, dice, art supplies, books, stationery and more.
In addition, the P&C have worked closely with the school and parents to identify the highest need for funding. So far we’ve helped with providing cover for the ramp access to the hall and providing more power to outdoor areas. Previous events have funded:
- Air-conditioners in classrooms
- Learning Support Teacher (additional hours)
- Library equipment
- Interactive whiteboards in all classrooms
- Wifi technology
- A new projector for the hall
- New appliances for the canteen
- Outdoor roofing structure (COLA)
- Sporting equipment
