Maroochy Weekly - - EVENTS -

THE Sun­shine Coast com­mu­nity is be­ing called on to throw their sup­port be­hind the Cur­rimundi Spe­cial School as it cur­rently un­der­goes a ma­jor trans­for­ma­tion for its stu­dents.

The school, which has dou­bled its en­rol­ments in the past five years, is cur­rently build­ing a new block of 13 class­rooms and will need a new all-abil­i­ties play­ground.

To fund the play­ground and cru­cial med­i­cal equip­ment to sup­port stu­dent needs the Cur­rimundi Spe­cial School P and C will host a cock­tail party on Satur­day, June 9 at the Caloun­dra Power Boat Club from 7pm.

“This is the first time we have run this event but we’re hop­ing to make it an an­nual tra­di­tion for our school,” P and C pres­i­dent Kylie Grim­ley said.

“The school is ex­pand­ing rapidly with the en­rol­ments hav­ing dou­bled in the last five years, cre­at­ing a need for ad­di­tional class­rooms and sup­port ma­te­ri­als.

“We’re hop­ing lo­cal busi­nesses would con­sider sup­port­ing our school with an auc­tion or raf­fle prize for the evening.”

Mem­ber for Caloun­dra Mark McAr­dle en­cour­aged the com­mu­nity to dig deep.

“This re­ally is a great cause and will raise some great funds for some ter­rific kids,” Mr McAr­dle said.

“Dust off the cock­tail frock and show your sup­port, ev­ery ticket counts and the Spe­cial School greatly ap­pre­ci­ates your sup­port.”

Tick­ets cost $50 a per­son for the adult-only event an d can be pur­chased at https://bit.ly/2IWCYFU.
