Fundraising

Introducing The Fundraising Committee

Fundraising

Fundraising though events raises much needed funds to supplement the limited government funding we receive. These funds contribute to day to day operating expenses of our school, as well as additional non-funded items for the betterment of our children’s education and maintaining a safe and pleasant learning environment, e.g. maintenance of our computer ratio of 1:2, additional learning aids, air-conditioning, playground equipment and fencing to name a few.

Help supercharge the fun at RPS in 2018!

We welcome your help, ideas and donations for raffles & auctions for our four main events throughout the year. Each event is managed by a different parent team so you don’t need to commit to a full year, just one event.

We’re looking for teams to manage the Movie Night (Term 2) and Arts Expo (Term 4). There are detailed notes of what’s been done in the past or create something new… it’s up to you! Please email the office richmond.ps@edumail.vic.gov.au if you can take on one of these events. Look out for volunteer rosters close to each event if you can’t commit very far ahead. It’s a really easy way to get to know your school community.
