Fundraising update- Bunnings BBQ and Caring for Kids raffle

Thank you to everybody who volunteered at the Bunnings’ BBQ last month.  We’re very grateful for all the help we received and are very pleased to announce that we raised over $1,300.

We’ve also been notified of the final results of the Caring for Kids raffle held earlier in the year and we raised $940 for the kindergarten.  A big thank you to Fiona Macri for organising this again this year and thank you to everyone for the great effort buying and selling tickets. We finished in the top 20 ticket sellers this year!  Unfortunately we didn’t sell the winning ticket, but it was sold close to home with Progress Kindergarten taking the honour.

This term’s fundraising efforts have contributed to the purchase of the following new resources to expand on our existing sets including magna tiles, magneatos and transport play scenes. We have also purchased traffic signs to go with our transport sets, beanbags and a new trolley for our outdoor blocks.

We’re currently finalising fundraising for the rest of the year and are looking for more volunteers to help organise our next event. We’d love to see some new (or old) faces taking part, so if you can help, please contact  me at

Once again, thank you all for supporting our kindergarten.

Julie-Anne Carbon and the Fundraising Team
