Spring Fair update

Things are really buzzing along for our bee themed Spring Fair ‘Sparks of Wonder’. The decorations are coming along swimmingly: You may start to see bees popping up around the place, stalls are coming together, and we’re about to embark on craft workshops for primary classes.

Class 3 are working hard and there are lots of ways you can support us with Spring Fair preparation:
• Please make space to attend craft workshops for your class (Kindy – C4). It’s a requirement that at least 6 parents from each class join us for these trainings so that each craft can be carried out with maximum confidence, safety and joy! As a reminder workshop dates are:
Kindy – August 22nd 9am-12pm
Class 1 – August 15th 9am – 12pm
Class 2 – August 8th 9am – 12pm
Class 4 – August 29th 9am – 10am

• Please bring your egg cartons and nature contributions (Bangalow Palm Seeds and banksia pods) and leave them in the designated boxes at Class 3 (or on the table if the box if full/absent).

• Please support our beautiful school by selling Raffle Tickets. The prizes we have on offer this year are UNBELIEVABLE! There are eleven major prize packs to be won! Tickets are online or feel free to contact Reception for paper tickets. https://www.rafflelink.com.au/springfair2019

Thank you so much, your interest and support means the world to us.

Warmest wishes,
Carolyn Farrow
Spring Fair Communications Co-ordinator

Spring Fair Raffle: would you or your kids like paper raffle tickets to sell?

Thanks to everyone for spreading the word about the Spring Fair Raffle. We’ve sold more than $3500 worth of tickets, which is a great result six weeks out from the Fair. Funds raised will be spent on play and exercise equipment, and school camp gear, for primary and high school.

Let us know if you or your kids would like to sell paper raffle tickets as a cash sale.

In addition to online raffle ticket sales, we have been making cash sales at the Friday school market, the bush dance, and local farmers markets. A few parents have indicated that they miss the chance to sell paper tickets, so please either drop into Reception to pick up some tickets, or email Margaret to let her know you’d like some. Because it’s a cash sales form for the online raffle, the ’tickets’ will look a little different.

Prize # 2 – Sweet Dreams. Win more than $1900 worth of luxurious sleep items. Prize includes a Belgian linen King quilt cover, cotton sheet sets (King and single), a silk velvet and linen throw, latex pillows, a voucher for $500 worth of linen or towards a mattress or bed from Koala, and $200 worth of vouchers for French linen, plus a bottle of pure lavender oil, calming tea and a couple of good books for the bedside table. For details, please see the raffle webpage.
Please continue to help us to spread the word to friends and family about the raffle. You can email them this link https://www.rafflelink.com.au/springfair2019 or share from the school’s Facebook page.

Let’s raise as much as we can for our kids’ play and exercise equipment and school camp gear.

Warm wishes from the Class 3 Raffle team.

CBRSS P & F is proud to present

Please note this event is for the School Community only

Lou Harvey-Zahra will also be presenting workshops on Saturday 31st of August at Shearwater school for more information please visit our online community noticeboard.

Spring Fair Raffle

Many thanks to everyone who has spread the word about our Spring Fair Raffle. We’ve raised $2000 so far, which is a great start. Every ticket sold means more funds to spend on play and exercise equipment for our kids, and on gear for our school camps. Instead of asking you to sell paper tickets, we are asking every school family to send the following link to family and friends. https://www.rafflelink.com.au/springfair2019 If you are heading away for the holidays, please take the chance to sell tickets to family and friends.

There are no paper tickets this year. Except for paper ticket sales at the Friday market, local farmers’ markets and at this evening’s Bush Dance.

We’ve had lots of great feedback on the prizes in the raffle. Please check out the prize packages if you haven’t already. For example, The Byron Bliss Out package includes a family ocean adventure guided by a marine biologist (see the photo). Plus oodles of pampering goodies, a private yoga class and meal and magazine vouchers.

And especially popular among the students is the Family Fun package, whose winner will walk away a stack of vouchers: for a family surf lesson, roller skating, ten-pin bowling, horse-riding, a private skateboard lesson, Bush School, flying trapeze lesson, water slide, a visit to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, plus vouchers for the camping store, sushi and gelato.

Let’s make the most of the wonderful generosity of all the donors and sell lots of tickets.

Spring Fair Raffle

Our annual Spring Fair raffle is now underway! This year it will be an online raffle, with some truly fantastic prizes.

First prize is three-night getaway to Elements of Byron resort, for four people (or five including a young child) in a 2-bedroom villa, plus meals at Barrio and Three Blue Ducks restaurants.

Click through to our raffle website to see more of the great prizes so generously donated. (Think gorgeous homewares packages and family adventures and bliss-out treatments).

Buying tickets: is easy. All you need to do is visit our raffle website and pay with credit card.

Selling tickets: There are no paper tickets this year. Instead of asking you to sell a book of tickets, we ask you to send the link to friends and family and invite them to buy tickets. You can:
• email them the link to our raffle website www.rafflelink.com.au/springfair2019
• text the link that the school has texted you today,
• visit our school Facebook page and share the raffle post,
• visit the raffle website and share from there.

You might like to sit with your kids and make a list of the family members and friends you could invite to buy tickets. We’re asking you to forward this link to at least twenty people. Let’s make the most of the generosity of our donors. Money raised this year will go to exercise and play equipment, and resources for school camps.

Cash sales If a friend or family member would rather not buy with credit card, you can take cash from them and pay with your credit card. Just make sure to write their name and email address into the online form so they receive the emailed receipt. We will also be making cash sales at the Friday school market and at all the area’s farmers’ markets.

Incentive prizes for selling tickets The primary school class and the high school class that sell the most tickets will enjoy a free picnic pizza lunch at school with salad, hot chocolate and cake! (With vegetarian, GF and DF options.)

When anyone buys a raffle ticket, they have the chance to indicate on the website which class they are buying the ticket in support of. This is how we count how many sales each class has made. So make sure to tell family and friends which class to nominate when they buy their tickets. When you share the link, you could add, “Tick my year level (Class ….or Year… ) when you buy your tickets”.

Thank you for your support.

Donations sought for Spring Fair 2019

Dear school community

Could you donate something to our Spring Fair raffle or silent auction?

We know September and the Spring Fair are still a fair way off! But now’s the time for Class 3 to get organised for the raffle and silent auction.

If you have a business and would like to donate an item or a voucher for a service, we would be very grateful. We’ll also be seeking donations for the produce stall in due course, so if you are a grower and would like to donate to the produce stall, please let us know. (The produce stall will have fruit and veggies, other produce, plants and seedlings).

Or perhaps you have a local business you really value who you’d like to suggest that we approach (please don’t approach them on our behalf in case we have already done so!)

Together, let’s make this year’s Fair a bountiful and glorious celebration of Spring.

Please contact Sarah on sarah@sarah-armstrong.com or Lesa on lesaparker@gmail.com

Many thanks
