Sustainable Futures Fair the place to be

IGS community members turned out in force to purchase second hand uniforms, text books and instruments at the PTF Sustainable Futures Fair.

Incorporating the final Rue Kelly secondhand sale for the year, the event attracted hundreds of parents and caregivers eager to secure items for their growing children while benefiting the environment.

The IGS Parents Teachers and Friends Association (PTF) raised $1,510 selling donated second hand text books, all of which will be passed on to The Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

Almost $3,000 was collected for uniform items. At an average of $5 an item, that is almost 600 items saved from landfill and recycled back into our community.

IGS thanks the Parents Teachers and Friends Association (PTF) for their hard work organising and volunteering at the fair.

The next PTF Rue Kelly second hand textbook, uniform and instrument sale will be held at the school entrance on Friday 31 January, 2020, from 8am to 9am.
