Funfest 2016 a success very little will forget

As Funfest 2016 coordinators, we feel so blessed to have been able to work with such a mighty team of volunteers who worked so tirelessly behind the scenes for so many months. Without them, the organisation would’ve been almost impossible. Their giving hearts and their willingness to run with the baton was invaluable.

Henry Ford explains teamwork really well, “Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is a progress, working together is success”. Without this incredible Funfest team working so well together the day would not have been the great success that it was. We cannot thank the whole committee enough.

Parents, relatives, friends and staff did an incredible job not only setting up, packing down and running the stalls and activities on the day but also rounding up a massive amount of donations in the preceding months. So many businesses generously gave donations, time and money, including some very supportive GCC family businesses who sponsored a stall – please see their logos below and support their businesses whenever you can. A huge thank you goes to our major sponsors and donators for  Funfest 2016:

As we walked around the grounds on the day, the sun was out celebrating with us and the happy squeals of children and the smiling faces of adults, were the greatest rewards we could ask for. Thank you to everyone who came along to help make the day the exciting vibe that it was.

The College P & F hold Funfest every two years and being their major fundraiser it allows them to funnel so many funds back into our College for our children. We highly encourage you to be a part of Funfest in 2018. The P & F really do appreciate all the help of volunteers and they will always make you feel valued and appreciated.

I know for us, Funfest 2016 is an event that we will never forget. Thank you to the whole College community for confirming to us that we really are part of an amazingly giving school.

Stephanie McCredie & Margaret Johnson,

Funfest 2016 Coordinators
