Fair Update from the PTA
Preparations are now well underway for the 2019 Fair. We appreciate all the help we get from our school community and we are very fortunate to have so many parents and families that are willing to be involved and support this event – it is the major fundraiser for the year so we want it to be a huge success! It is not too late to offer your help, so please get involved and join in the fun of the day! We are in particular need of helpers to set up on Saturday 19 October and to help with stalls at the Fair.
Thanks to all those families who have contacted the PTA with offers of help. If you have not done so already, please click on this link to indicate how you plan to help.
Year 9 & 10 students
It has always been a tradition at Roncalli that Year 9 & 10 families are asked to provide baking and sweets for the fair, although it is certainly not restricted to Year 9 & 10 – the more the better!. Sweets and baking can be dropped at the college office or at the foods room from 1pm on Saturday 19 October,– it does not need to be packaged up ready for selling because our fabulous sweets stall team can do that – just pop it in a container and drop it off.
Year 13 students
Another tradition at Roncalli is that Year 13 families donate items for the grocery raffle. Last year we had a fabulous selection of items in the trolley and we would hope to do even better this year. Please check items for an expiry date before donating them, and a variety of grocery items is appreciated. We want the trolley to look full and impressive, so donate items that you would like to see if you were buying a ticket! There will be a trolley located in the main office reception for the collection of grocery items, and it will also be available at senior conferencing in the gym on Monday 14 October.
Thanks to the many families who have already returned raffle books. If you have not yet returned your book, please do so as soon as possible. All books must be accounted for, so even unsold books must be returned. Please save us from having to make a phone call chasing these up!
Raffle Books are due back at school by 20 September. For people to go in the draw for the $100 Warehouse voucher for books returned on time and for most books sold, they need to be in by that date.
Please start collecting goods suitable for sale at the White Elephant, Silent Auction, second hand clothing and books stalls. A container will be parked up beside the Gymnasium and goods can be left there from Monday 14 October - please ensure all goods are left before 4.00pm daily.
Thanks for your support in making this another successful Roncalli Fair!
