Recent Fundraising Projects

The biggest focus of the PTA and our helpers is the fundraising and funding of the School’s ‘wish list’. The School’s wish list is put together by requests from teachers which are then prioritised by the School Principal. We feel it’s really important to show you, our community, what we are fundraising for and therefore we always want to communicate fundraising targets before and after events. The School’s wish list contains large and small budget $$ items, and can be: educational; related to school facilities; social; cultural; or help parents in some way.

The PTA are currently working towards replacing our aging Junior Playground. This is a massive undertaking with an estimated budget of $70,000. With your help, over the last 2 years we have raised $51,000 towards this goal. Planned fundraising for 2021 should allow us to reach our target by the end of the year.
Here are some of the recent projects our community has fund raised for:
