P&C Fundraising News

4/08/2017

Volunteers Needed!



The P&C Fundraising Committee is trialling a new online event management tool to assist with rostering volunteers and co-ordinating class attendance for stalls. For the upcoming Father’s Day Stall, volunteers and teachers will be able to choose their own time slots and make changes as needed.

Sign up at http://www.signupgenius.com

We are calling out for your help to assist us in manning the Father’s Day Stall on Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 August. Please use the link above to sign up or email Liz on the fundraising email address below if you can offer an hour or so on either of those days.

As a very active committee we are always looking for extra help and we’re putting the call out for anyone in our school community who would like to get involved! Even if you can only spare an hour or two here and there, it would be greatly appreciated. The Fundraising Committee always needs volunteers for our events and we love meeting new people. To register your interest please email us on fundraising@gumdalesspc.org.au

 

Father’s Day Stall – Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 August

With the Father’s Day Stall coming up next month we are seeking donations of boxes of individually wrapped chocolates e.g. Favourites, Roses etc. to put with Father’s Day gifts. These can be left in the P&C donations box in the School Office Foyer. We thank you for your support. Keep up to date with this event by joining the Father’s Day Stall Event on the Gumdale State School Fundraising Facebook page.

School Fun Run – Friday 8 September



On Friday 8 September, will see the return of our school Fun Run. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the Fun Run last year and as a Fundraising event it was a wonderful success.
The Fun Run team and PE teachers are working very hard on completing the course details ready for our students to have an inclusive and fun filled event.

Next week, each child will receive a School Run4Fun sponsorship booklet, please keep this safe as you will need to return the prize form on the back cover to claim your incentive prizes.  This year, setting up your child’s profile page on Go Fundraise is the most effective way to gain sponsorships.  Raise as little as $10 and your child will be entitled to a prize of their choice, raise more and you can select multiple prizes.

This year will see the individual highest fundraiser winning a trophy to be presented on assembly and the highest fundraising class will win themselves a Pizza Party.  The best news is that Gumdale State School have an exclusive prize, raise $30 or more and you will go into the draw to win a Sea World Resort & Water Park holiday for 2 adults and 2 children valued at $600!  More information will be emailed to parents next week. We will be seeking parents to assist on the day at various obstacles and to generally direct and cheer on the children. If you are interested please email the team at fundraising@gumdalesspc.org.au . Keep up to date with this event by joining the Fun Run Event on the Gumdale State School Fundraising Facebook page

Gumdale Trivia Night – Saturday 21 October
