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
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 email@example.com 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.
