Fundraising so far
The Executive Committee are excited to share with you the huge success of this year’s fundraising so far of $21,900 plus the 2016 biennial fete profit of $24,400.

At the recent P&C meeting we approved the donation of $35,000 to identified and approved school priorities:

$20,000 for ICT – additional classroom computers and iPads.
$15,000 for STEM – (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Resources.

We have our final fundraising raffle coming up – the Christmas Raffle.  Full of terrific Christmas presents – bike, electric guitar, nerf gun, Xbox games, Samsung Tablet, restaurant vouchers, rounds of golf, hardware voucher.  Profits from this Christmas Raffle, together with some of our existing funds, we are aiming to donate further money to the school and spend some funds on renewing the fridge and freezer space in the Canteen to accommodate the fresh and on-site made food.  The Christmas Raffle will be drawn at the School Carols night – you don’t need to be at the carols to win!

Thank you to all the school families who contributed and joined in the fundraising activities.  We hope you won something, enjoyed the stalls and walked a new record in the lapathon!

Thank you to all our Sponsors who provide such fabulous prizes, financial support and assistance to make the P&C a success.

Canteen: 
The Canteen will be closed on Tuesday 22 November to allow for catering of the Volunteer Christmas Lunch.  The P&C will be offering a Subway Fundraiser Lunch deal on that day.  Please return your slip and money to the Canteen by 10am on Thursday 17 November 2016.

We are proud to announce that the new Canteen Menu has been awarded a 5 out of 5 star rating under Smart Choices from QAST (Queensland Association of School Tuckshops).  We congratulate Sally, our Canteen Convenor ,along with the volunteers as this rating has resulted in our Canteen receiving a Special Commendation Certificate, at the Queensland Tuckshop of the Year Awards.

Check out the new items on the Menu this term:  Mexican Mini Tortilla Boats, Chicken Caesar Wraps, Light Sausage Rolls, Frozen Orange Wedges.

Volunteers for the Canteen – stay for half an hour, stay for a few hours, your assistance will be greatly appreciated by the students.  Come in anytime (doors open 8.30am to 2pm) and enjoy some social contact, share a story and a cuppa tea - whilst you pack a lunch, toast a sandwich, stir a pot of bolognaise, slice a tomato or bake some muffins!

The canteen would also like some volunteers from 10.30am each day to assist with the assembling of lunches into class baskets (i.e. gathering the drinks, food, forks etc for each lunch order) for the 11am lunch bell distribution. 

Uniform Shop – The School Locker:
The School Locker provides all the uniform and music requirements for our students.  The School Locker operates the shop at our school two days a week: Tuesday and Wednesday 8am to 10.30am in addition to The School Locker shop at North Lakes which is open 7 days a week (late on Thursday nights) and also offers on-line ordering www.theschoollocker.com.au.

For every sale at The School Locker our P&C raises money for the school.  Each family will be given a Student Advantage Card to receive educational pricing and each time your card is scanned, our school will receive fundraising support from The School Locker.  Use your Student Advantage Card at any location of The School Locker – our school site, at North Lakes or on-line to support the P&C fundraising.
