Cakes are NOT banned – your fundraising activities may include the sale of cake…

FUNDRAISING FRIDAYS replace the class cake sales that parents and carers have run in previous years.

On at least six Fridays each year – not more than once a month – the PTA supports fundraising activities with a specific benefit for the school (such as resources for a class project or after-school club) or for a relevant charity or good cause.

Any school-appropriate cause may bid for one of the Fridays at the start of the year.  If you get one, the PTA will work with you to help publicise and run your event, including providing a float for sales. It’s up to you what you do to raise the funds:

Fruit Rockets

Think creative!

This initiative is a result of repeated requests from the school and from parents to help families support their children’s health by emphasizing good nutrition and fun activities, rather than sweet treats after school.
