Loose Change Challenge

WOW!  What an amazing activity the Loose Change Challenge was the last two weeks of Term 2!

Thank you to School Administration for supporting and allowing the P&C Fundraising Committee to run this event for the students.

Thank you also to the local business Gumdale Bakery who supported this event. They have donated some awesome cupcakes for 2nd Prize winners.

It was great to see so many students, parents and grandparents bringing into school as many coins they could have found lying around the house, in the car, fallen between the lounge seats.  We were certainly overwhelmed with the number of coins collected. 

Congratulations to classes Prep M, 1CO, 2W, 3M, 4M, 5R and 6W who took out the class prizes.  You raised a total of $1760.60 worth of coins, which was a tremendous effort.  

Coming in second place was class 4M. This class collected a total of $330.95, which is an amazing effort.  4M will be enjoying a morning tea with 30 cupcakes donated by the Gumdale Bakery.

Our winning class for this year’s Loose Change Challenge is 3M.  They raised a staggering total of $515.95.  You certainly pulled together as a team and were able to raise an incredible amount of money for the P&C.  3M get to enjoy a Pizza Party, complete with pizza, garlic bread, drinks and Zooper Doopers.

Thank you everyone for supporting this fantastic fundraiser, we are incredibly happy to announce this activity raised over $3600.
