P&C continues to support students
THE Gayndah State School P&C continued its hard work fundraising for the school with a themed Vintage Fair this past week.
Binjour Primary School teacher aide Angela Goldie was one of the brains behind this year’s fair and was happy with the results.
“There are a lot of people here which is really good,” Mrs Goldie said.
“The P&C needed some really good fundraising and was the year for having a fair so I thought it would be good to try something a little bigger.”
Mrs Goldie said the theme added to the event.
“People love themes and with lots of craft and everything I thought a vintage theme would be good with some fairy lights and a twilight market,” Mrs Goldie said.
“It’s also the first time we invited stall holders, normally it’s just class stalls, all the local businesses didn’t need any talking into it which was really nice.”
Proceeds from the fundraising event will be put back into the school to help benefit students further. “Most of the proceeds will go back directly to the kids, so buying resources like school books and sports equipment,” Mrs Goldie said. “We did a lot of fundraising this year for our camp as well, the kids have gone to Canberra, so this is something for the whole school.”
Parents and community members rallied around the P&C to make the event a success.
“A massive thing was we got all the fruit and veggies donated which was just phenomenal,” Mrs Goldie said.
“Just such a huge thing and we received donations from school families as well which has been great.”
