- $35,000 donation toward the instrumental music program
- $5,500 toward our Coding and Digital Technology Clubs
- The purchase of sports House Team marquees
- Playground equipment and shade sails through community grants
Annual events coordinated by the P&F include:
- Junior School Disco
- Movie Night
- Trivia Night
- Mother's Day and Father's Day Gift Stalls
- The Spring Fair
The Spring Fair
The major fundraising event and highlight of the school calendar, the Spring Fair is traditionally held early in Term 4, and features live entertainment, amusement rides, stalls, and fireworks, all of which turn the school grounds into a carnival for the day.
While the fundraising aspect of the Fair is important, the P&F Committee believes the Fair is a great "friend-raiser", and a wonderful opportunity for teachers, students, staff, parents, carers and grandparents to work together for the good of the school and its community.
P&F Committee meets once per month. These meetings are a great way for members of our school community to find out more about the school and the activities of the P&F, with the opportunity to ask questions and to hear first-hand from the Principal and other staff about issues and news affecting the school. We invite you to view the current Principal's report from the most recent P&F Committee meeting.
