FUNDRAISING FOR MAUNGAWHAU SCHOOL
OUR SCHOOL FAIR - UPPING THE FUN, SPREADING THE LOAD & SUPPORTING OUR SCHOOL
In the last year the FOMs and Fair Committee teams reviewed the fundraising challenges for our school and we would like to approach fundraising with greater emphasis on the kids, family fun, and spreading the workload across the year.
Due to a lot of the Fair Committee members moving on or stepping down, we are looking for new team members who would like to get involved....big or small!
Traditionally a large fundraising expectation fell on the fair alone, putting added pressure on parents, kids, and teachers alike in the critical final term. By introducing a spread of fundraising activities throughout the year we believe we can deliver a series of fun community events, for parents and children, that are less stressful overall but still deliver against the fundraising target.
Each year, our Board of Trustees set a fundraising target and we work together with our community to exceed these goals which supports our school BOT in expanding our school facilitles for everyone to enjoy.
If you prefer to help without committing heavily, there are lots of smaller tasks we would appreciate your help with such as making signs, driving for food pick-ups, etc. Please get in touch if you are interested in getting involved in anyway.
Thank you in advance for supporting your school community.
Fundraising is very important in our school as we receive the least amount of government funding which directly impacts our children’s schooling life.
Fundraising is split over a number of activities not only to help us reach our annual target but also to provide a supportive environment that ALL parents are encouraged to be a part of - let’s have some fun while we support our children and the school. Be part of your school community by getting involved, it is also great way to meet people.
The annual School Fair is a highlight of the local community’s calendar, attracting thousands of attendees from the local area and far beyond. It is a fun, vibrant and energetic event offering a wide range of food, entertainment and shopping experiences over the course of the day.
The fair is the key fundraising event for the school with profits being reinvested directly into projects and initiatives that benefit the school and its pupils.
