The Canowindra Public School P & C have been hard at work fundraising in 2016 towards their goal of $25,000 towards an upgrade to the play equipment on level 3. So far this year, through plenty of hard work they have already raised $11,000.
The existing play equipment has been in for some time and is in need of some touch-ups and maintenance. The school has also grown considerably in the years since the play equipment was installed, and the need for more equipment is apparent now that the school has grown so much, and continues to grow!
The P & C are planning to fix up the existing play equipment and double the size of the area with the addition of new equipment. The recent storms have also created issues, by washing all the soft fall away. The playground was actually closed for several weeks due to the lack of soft fall in the area. The soft fall costs around $1500 to replace, so with the help from some clever parents, we created a drain to try and divert the water away from the area and prevent our soft fall ending up down the main street!
We need the help of the community to get us over the line. We have some time pressures affecting us at the moment, in that, price rises are expected and to secure the equipment at the quoted price, we need to move swiftly.
The P & C will be holding a Trivia Night to raise funds on Saturday the 13th of August at the Canowindra Services Club. It’s only $10 per person to come and join in. Tables of 8 will be available. Cash prizes will be awarded to the winning team. Raffles, lucky door prizes and many fun games will also be held throughout the evening. The P & C will also be offering hot finger food platters for purchase at $10 per person.
