Fundraising

 

 

At Clover Hill State School we are lucky to have a great community interested in having a direct effect on the resources and experiences we offer our children and fundraising plays a big part in achieving this.   

 

Why do we need to fundraise?

Although government funds cover the bulk of expenses - such as staff wages, curriculum resourcing, facilities, ICT provisions and utilities - they don’t stretch to things like class sets of iPads, adequate grounds maintenance and extra learning spaces. 

To cover these resources, our P&C asks parents to help out through donations and fundraising. 

 

So how can I help?

There are plenty of opportunities for you to help throughout the year, starting with our fundraising events. (Subject to change in each calendar year).

Term 1: Fun Run, Easter Raffle

Term 2: Mother’s Day Stall, Silver Coin Challenge

Term 3: Father’s Day Stall, School Disco, Trivia Night

Term 4: Trunk or Treat, Outdoor Movie Night, Christmas Festivities 

For each event, we need an Event Coordinator and also a team of willing helpers!  If you're the Event Coordinator, you'll receive a handover folder of information for your event, so you won’t be left scratching your head about what needs to be done.

Please email us at pandc@cloverhillss.eq.edu.au and let us know if you are keen to help out. 

 

How much do we raise?

That depends in part on how many fundraisers our volunteers run each year, and how profitable they are. But fundraising is not just about events; we also raise money in other ways. For example, you are contributing when you purchase your entertainment books through us. Clover Hill State School also benefits from sponsorships and donations from local businesses and organisations.  By supporting them you are supporting Clover Hill!

 

Who decides how the money gets spent?

P&C members make this decision on the basis of proposals put forward by the Principal.  Another important reason to attend P&C meetings.

 

Thank you for your contribution, together we can do so much.
