Our Fundraising

In order to fund these essential elements of our school, we have had the pleasure of organising many fun and interesting fundraising events.  Every year, our signature fundraiser is the Cowpat Lotto which earns the P&F (and therefore the school) $9,000 dollars.  Click here for How it works CPL document which explains it all and click here for the guide to How to sell your tickets CPL for our school families and parents.
