The Fundraising Committee organises events and activities which address the twin objectives of having fun together and raising money for our school. The P&C is instrumental in providing additional funds to support our growing school. Without these funds and community support, we would not be able to support the growing needs of our school. We work towards gaining addition funds through a variety of avenues.
Who Are We?
Traditionally, Year 3 parents/carers take responsibility for leading the primary fundraising activities within the school. The logic behind this is that, by Year 3, parents/carers are generally familiar with how the school works, have probably attended one or more events, and their children still have enough years left at the school to benefit from the hard work of their parents/carers raising funds.
Our annual events are listed in the P&C Event Calendar.
Parents/carers and friends can assist Mowbray through utilising the following businesses, which provide commission or supplies back to our school.
|Bright Star Kids||If using Bright Star Kids for your school labels, please nominate “Mowbray Public School” at the Checkout (under “Link a Fundraising Account”). Our P&C earns 15% from each order.|
|Scholasatic Book Club LOOP||Scholastic Book Club – Whenever you purchase, the school is given points toward buying educational resources. Scholastic Book Club catalogues are periodically sent home with your child.|
|Entertainment Membership||Entertainment Membership – Get over $20,000 worth of valuable offers for hotels and resorts, travel, attractions, dining, shopping and more. Plus, we will receive 20% of every membership sold. Books available from the school Office or Digitally!|
