Prep along with the Year 7 and 10 leaders holding some of the awesome auction prizes up for grabs at the Back to the Bay Day
Sitting in the heat for a few minutes can get very uncomfortable, so imagine spending a whole day sweltering while trying to learn. Students are not looking forward to another year melting at their desks and need your help!
Unfortunately the government money pot isn’t big enough to fund this necessary luxury so the P&C have been tirelessly working to install air conditioning in the whole school.
On October 13 the gates to the school will open at 9am and for a mere $2 entry you will get a lucky gate ticket (draws every hour) and a whole day of fun. From stalls and displays to entertainment and finals of school competitions, the day will be jam-packed with things to do.
With the generous help of local Darryl Lee, the Back to the Bay Fundraising Day will include an array of ‘old school’ ways. Crafts of yesteryear including butter and damper making, wheelwrighting and rope making, a gypsy camp, old school display and much much more.
The major part of the day will be the auction at 1pm where goods will go to the highest bidder and all proceeds raised go to getting the kids cool in summer.
“We have numerous items up for grabs including whale watching voucher, museum and zoo passes, whipper snipper, gift packs, broncos jersey, cowboys gear and a beautiful opal worth over $300,” co-ordinator Annette Bailey excitingly exclaimed.
“The support so far has been great, but air conditioning doesn’t come cheap, so we hope that the community gets behind this cause and digs deep.”
