Rainbow Beach State School P&C held a special certificate presentation and refreshments at parade last month to recognise the wonderful support from the businesses and volunteers of our Rainbow community.

Jed Elmer (P&C President) spoke to the students and attendees about the ‘good deeds’ the community had undertaken over the 2019 school year. They included; donations, baking cakes, preparing food, staffing the BBQ and other stalls, administrative duties, and providing free or heavily discounted products for events. Year 1 student James Fitzgerald even sold his artwork to raise funds!

“The volunteers and businesses have contributed so much energy into supporting the P&C, asking for nothing in return, and that deserves recognition and gratitude. We wouldn’t be able to operate the events to raise funds for the students without them,” Jed Elmer said.

This year, funds raised have contributed to school camps, student transport and school equipment.

Special acknowledgement and heartfelt gratitude was given to Kirstie-Jordison for her outstanding service in her role as President and Vice-President over the last four years, who will be stepping down at the end of the school year.

BJ Parton who managed the tuckshop every week for many years has also stepped down. The P&C are overwhelmingly grateful for her support and the students will miss her!

If you are interested in supporting the young people of our community, or have any ideas to contribute, you are most welcome at the monthly meetings. There will also be a Vice-President position available for 2020. Keep track by following the P&C Facebook page, or contact the school office: 5486 9333.
