Fundraising Update – 9 May 2012

Just a reminder that the Mother’s Day Stall is being held tomorrow! We have a wonderful assortment of gifts that the children can buy. Prices range from 50c to $5.00, with cards being $1.00 each. It would be great if you could send a plastic bag with your child to put their purchases in.

 

Well done to everyone this week with the Spare Change Drive! The fire of competition was certainly lit with the introduction of house points last week. House Captains will be coming around to collect the spare change on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. Keep bringing in that spare change everyone!! Amounts raised last week are as follows:

Plenty – $71.15 – 400 points

Gresswell – $34.65 – 200 points

Balmoral – $55.45 – 300 points

LaTrobe – $28.00 – 100 points

A total of $189.25 was raised last week, with a total of $289.80 being raised so far!!

If each student were able to bring in $1.00 a week, that would equate to roughly $200.00 raised each week, and approximately $2,000.00 for the term. Can we do it?? Let’s give it a go everyone!!!

Our final figures for the Bright Colours Disco showed a profit of $448.52. This is an outstanding result! Thanks to everyone who made it possible!!

The Fundraising Team and Ms Pollard, in consultation with the PLT, are currently working out where to spend our fundraising dollars this year, and more information will be available shortly.

In term 3 we will be holding a Demonstrator Day on Saturday 25th August. The idea behind this is to have demonstrators and party planners ‘purchase’ a table from us to enable them to display their wares. If anyone in the school community is interested in booking a table for themselves, please let the office know. Tables will be available for $25.

Our next meeting will be held on Monday 28th May at 7pm in the Staff Room. I hope to see you there!
