Fundraising and Sponsorship
As a small school we rely on a range of fundraising and sponsorship to ensure we can offer the very best learning opportunities to our children. Each year we are involved in a number of smaller fundraising opportunities such as catering which all families contribute towards. We are also fortunate to be able to fundraise at our yearly Golf Tournament - this is a our major fundraising event and normally makes the school between $20000-$30000! This enables us to fund a full time teacher aide and also cuts costs for our parents as we are able to subsidise a range of learning opportunities.
In 2022 we planned to add another major fundraiser to our calendar as we work towards fully funding a second teacher from Term 4 this year. Unfortnately due to Covid our 4WD day had to be postponed but we know it will be an amazing event in 2023!
Second Teacher Fund:
Our major fundraising focus is to raise funds so that we can keep our second teacher. This will cost the school between $80000 - $100000 per year. We have been saving hard over the last few years and know that we can reach our traget of $130000 in our second teacher fund by term 4 2022. If you are able to help in any way please let us know!
We would like to thank the following individuals & businesses for their continued support of our school. We actively encourage our school community to support our sponsors.
