P&C Fundraising News


Major Raffle –THANK YOU! 

We are thrilled to announce that our Hamilton Island Raffle Fundraiser was a huge success! With your assistance we were able to raise $10,753 to put towards school equipment and resources. 

We would like to thank you for all your efforts. It was wonderful to see the spirit and enthusiasm that was displayed in supporting our fundraiser. 

Volunteers Needed! 

Our volunteer numbers are really down this year and we’re putting the call out for anyone in our school community who could get involved! Can you spare an hour here and there to help raise funds for Gumdale State School? The Fundraising Committee needs volunteers for our upcoming events including people to help the students shop at the Mother’s Day Stall, others to help sell raffle tickets and run the BBQ on Saturdays at the IGA and also helpers for the set up and tear down of the Fashion Parade. To register your interest please email us on
