P&C con­tin­ues to sup­port stu­dents

Central and North Burnett Times - - WELCOME -

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.”
