COOL FOR SCHOOL UPDATE
As the P&F kick off their wonderful round of school events with this evening’s Welcome Cocktail Party, it is timely to acknowledge and express our gratitude for their huge efforts and contributions throughout 2016.
As you will recall, the P&F’s school fundraising activities last year were directed towards our ‘Cool for School’ campaign, for which appeals were also made directly to parents. The ‘big audacious goal’ was to raise enough money to air condition the whole Senior School! We were delighted to accept from the P&F at their AGM in November a very substantial cheque for $176,810 in support of this goal. Whilst our hope of the year’s fundraising being enough to air condition the whole school was not realised, this amount will enable us to put air conditioning into the Marian Centre, with all of the smart and environmentally sustainable technologies that we have in our Science block, in our Term 3 break this year.
We are hoping that further generous parent contributions and fundraising this year will enable us to extend air conditioning into other Senior School buildings over the coming months.
