What We Have Supported

With the funds we have raised we have successfully helped to improve the school grounds with purchases like the trim trail, sand pit and playground markings. We have also contributed money towards school visits to help reduce the cost of these visits for parents. We hope to continue to raise money and support the school with future initiatives. If you have any ideas to raise money or thoughts on what we could purchase for school to support the children's learning please come along to our next meeting.
