FUNDRAISING SO FAR
The team have been fundraising for new readers for K-2, which are much needed as I am sure any junior parents will agree! Led by Jacqui Busby and Melissa Bramich, a Bunnings Easter BBQ and raffle, and cake stall at the Easter Hat parade have been great successes. Along with generous parent donations, we are very close to reaching the $4000 target. We will be donating a cheque to the school at the P&C meeting next week, if anyone else would like to contribute you can do so here, thanks to all of those who have contributed:
The Election BBQ and raffle was run to raise funds for the Year 6 Graduation at the end of the year. It was a massive success and we managed to raise in excess of $11,000!!! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed – purchased raffle tickets, helped on the day on the BBQ and stalls, baked cakes, donated prizes and a special thanks to Ellise Andreacchio who coordinated the online sales. Congratulations to all of our winning raffle ticket holders, I hope you enjoy your prizes!
For all Year 6 parents, the graduation dinner has been confirmed for 13 December so save the date!
SCPS once again participated in the Coogee Dawn Service, and a special ANZAC assembly was held at the school. Both events were very moving, and the choir performed magnificently.
Until next time,
