Hilliard State School P&C

Fundraising

Our Fundraising team is responsible for the majority of the extra experiences that make school exciting for kids, such as:

  • Mother’s Day, Father’s Day & Christmas stalls
  • Colour Runs
  • Arctic Arvos
  • School Discos
  • Fetes or family fun days

You could say we aim to really put the FUN in fundraising! We also do other traditional fundraisers like pie drives and raffles throughout the year. We are a busy and active team and we’re always interested in new and exciting (and of course fun) ideas for raising funds, so you’re welcome to come along to our meetings, speak to one of our friendly chairpersons or email us.

Although our main focus is on running events and raising money to support the school, we also try to support local, Queensland or Australian owned businesses where possible. We also carefully consider how our fundraising efforts fit into our families lives, from stocking the pantry with a pie drive, to a much needed refresh of family photos, to healthy summery fruits, and useful, quality gift ideas.

The Fundraising Committee
All of our Fundraising committee members and helpers are volunteers who give up their time to coordinate events from start to finish, staff our stalls to help children pick the perfect present, cook yummy treats, manage collection for drives and raffle winners, or craft handmade items. There are many opportunities to be involved even if you’re not available in school hours – please contact our fundraising team for more information.

Craft Group
Our Fundraising team normally runs a craft group for one hour per week in the lead up to all of our stalls. Despite the name you don’t need to be crafty to join, although your creativity will certainly be appreciated! Tasks range from filling bags or jars with candy or cutting and folding paper and card, to more complex crafty endeavours.

We are hopeful that these craft groups will be able to recommence in 2021 so if you’re interested in joining us for some creativity and chat please email the fundraising team with which days you are free. If you’d like to help but can’t come during school hours that’s ok too – plenty of our helpers take tasks to do at home whilst binge watching the latest hot drama on Netflix đŸ˜‰
