The P&C approved a budgeted expenditure for 2018 which included our main fundraising goals for 2018. These have been developed in line with the wishes of parents, staff, the children and our Principal as follows: 

  1. Science and Literacy resources include readers for all years, STEM resource kits and the final touches to the library upgrade from last year. ($15,000)
  1. Sensory Learning Projects include organic gardening beds, earthworms, composting and other integrated activities which can be easily and actively incorporated into science and art learning programs and will provide stimulating play areas for the children on a daily basis. ($9000)
  1. Technology includes the provision of additional laptops and for use by K-6 classes in their computer literacy programs as well as engaging content relating to Internet safety. ($27,500)
  1. Air Conditioning(reverse cycle) has been identified as a major need for the school not only by the teachers and students but as a matter of state government policy. The comfort of the learning environment affects our kids cognitive functioning and the P&C aims to help fund the school’s needs in order of priority (as determined by the school). It should be noted that the P&C are also actively seeking opportunities to install solar panels to help reduce running costs, and in cognisance of our collective environmental stewardship values. ($25,000)
  1. Sports & Play opportunities are essential for our kids development and of particular importance in our inner city location. This includes playground equipment and required ongoing maintenance, as well as a proposed upgrade to the courts area. ($11,000)
  2. The Rainforest Project is a significant project identified by all stakeholders as an area of high importance to the school. The project requires structural stabilisation of the area to prevent further soil erosion, general maintenance and design and the provision of engaging sensory learning experiences and environments to facilitate play and learning opportunities. We are grateful to be working with the Wandana Indigenous education group, the staff, children and our own Environmental working group to bring to life the ideas that will make this well-loved area serve the school community for many years to come. This is a medium-term project likely to be delivered in stages, and into 2019 subject to the success of our fundraising efforts! ($16,000+) 

GRPS parent David Eggert has kindly designed and produce a fundraising thermometer in order for the P&C to effectively communicate the fundraising goals for 2018 as well as the progress we are making as the year and as events unfold. A large version will be visible in the school playground.
