After countless “gold coin donation” events throughout the year, the big one has come – the annual P&C Fundraiser.
This years major event was parents-only, in a hall filled with trivia booklets, eskies, silent auctions and side-games to add to the fun, and more importantly the P&C coffers.
A dress-up affair with a Reality TV Show theme, it made me realise just how many of these shows exist as parents let their hair down mimicking their TV sets, and more importantly – open the wallet.
The Parents and Citizens Federation was established in 1912 as a group dedicated to keeping public education free. They are represented in more than 2100 public schools in NSW, and while generally “behind the scenes”, their efforts can be reflected in the classrooms, gardens and structures around school.
