Fundraising at Ashby Primary School.
There is never enough money to do all the things we would like. Ashby Primary School has relied on the generosity of parents and the commuity (local businesses in particular) to help with providing students with better resources for their primary years education. Our School Council established the Friends of Ashby some 6 years ago to co-ordinate parents and friends and to take charge of the fundraising activities.
Since then, the children of Ashby Primary School have been fortunate to have increased literacy aids and art activies and supplies to the tune of over $100,000. Without fundraising and the generous time and efforts of parents, our students education would not be as "ideal" as it has been. Our "Trivia Night" and the "School Market Day and Art Show" have been our two most successful annual fundraisers.
Throughout the year a number of fundraisers pop-up and are co-ordinated through the Student Council or the Friends of Ashby or the School Council. If you have ideas or would like to co-ordinate a fundraiser, we would love your help. Contact the Friends of Ashby or the School office anytime with your suggestions, or go along to one of the morning teas, Fresh Fruit Friday, Facebook page or email.
