The PTF raised $2,439.90 in uniform sales, which equates to well over 350 items recycled back into the community and saved from land fill.
A lively trade of buying and selling texts happened over the afternoon and ideas exchanged on recycling and reusing and general saving of money and resources when sourcing text books.
Donated text books sold for $1,360.50 which will be given to The Indigenous Literacy Foundation. A car boot full of texts no longer on the book list were taken to Ts Textbooks where they will he passed on to remote schools in Papua New Guinea. Any books which are study guides or on other schools lists will be sold and the money donated to help fund the transportation of those texts.
A guitar and some music stands have been passed on to the music department to make their way to Sri Lanka. Lots of donations were brought in to go the The Basket Brigades annual basket packing.

PTF - General Items

Basket Brigade packing day
As part of our PTF Community Service Initiative we’d like to model helping others to our children and help others less fortunate. The Basket Brigade is run by volunteers at the not-for-profit organisation Magic Moments (not affiliated with any religion). They identify those doing it tough throughout the community and put together hampers for them. The Basket Brigade packing day is on Saturday 15 December, so for those still in town we’d like to encourage families to participate and pack hampers, sort and wrap presents and write Christmas cards at a warehouse in Homebush. It’s a great community atmosphere with a buzz of Christmas spirit. Registrations are now open! Please register here
