The Great Fete 2022
Exciting NEWS, The Great Fete will be on in 2022.
The P and F will be holding a Zoom meeting in December to form a committee to run the Fete.
The Fete has many benefits for the whole school community. The kids have a fun day with their friends, parents and teachers work together cooking, running stalls and planning activities. My experience as a volunteer parent was excellent, I made new friendships and had a sense of achievement and satisfaction knowing that I helped the children enjoy their day and raise over $40,000. The funds were used to enhance educational outcomes for students.
The Fete is the P and F’s main fundraising event for the year. Parents input whether large or small is needed and welcomed. Keep an eye out in the newsletter for the ZOOM meeting date of The Great Fete 2022 to kick the organizing off. Due to previous Fete experience we follow a tried and tested system that is easy to be a part of. Join in and volunteer to help make the Fete a success.
The AGM for 2022 will be held in February 2022. All positions on the committee will become vacant and a new committee will be elected. The new committee team to take us to 2023. Please consider joining the P and F so that we can we can continue providing funding and services that enhance educational outcomes for students.
