2021 Fundraising Focus

The main focus of our fundraising efforts in 2021 is geared towards  the construction of a new Year 3-8 adventure playground . The goal being to create a stimulating playground for the older students (made from sustainable products) which the students can utilise and enjoy being challenged for many years to come.

Why do we need to fundraise?

We fundraise to continue making St Benedict’s the great school it is for all student, staff and school community families.  We raise money to upgrade the playground areas, purchase computers and iPads for the classrooms and more!

Each year the school’s Board and Staff provide HoK with a list of ‘wish list’ items they would like us to fundraise for. This document is called the Staff Support List and is valued and appreciated by the teachers!

How can I help?

The HoK team required many volunteers for our events. We have a sausage sizzle each term, along with Friday being known as ‘Friday PieDay’, there are quizzes and movie nights, plus we have the school fair in Term 4 each year, and two discos at the end of every year. There is always plenty planned during the year – so keep an eye on the calendar and weekly school newsletter. Email the Help our Kids team if you would like to help out with an event or have a fundraising idea.
