A New Playground - A new challenge

Its now official the Home and School, Board of Trustees, teachers and parents have a new fundraising mission of a new playground for the school.
With the growing number of students on the same playground space the time has come for a new playground.
This playground will be mainly targeted at 7-10 year olds but in no way limited to them.

A first estimate of cost is somewhere between $50,000 to $80,000 depending on specifics.  Unfortunately we do not have that kind of money sitting anywhere in a Home and School bank account to just buy it.  So we have started a round of fundraising up until Christmas that has been confirmed. Planning is continuing beyond this but obviously we need help. The Home and School Committee consists of less than ten parents. Please ask yourself what skills do you have that may help us to get to our fundraising goal quicker. It may be that you can offer us a voucher from your business for a raffle or you have baking skills and can help out with these at a function? It maybe that you can just give us some of your time at a fundraiser and that could make all the difference.

Please email us your ideas and thoughts on how we can get the money to fund the playground.
