The countdown is on to Funfest 2020! This year we have an exciting competition for all of our volunteers but more on that later in this letter. Funfest is on Saturday 15 August (pop that date on your calendar or in your phone now).
So, what is Funfest? Funfest is the GCC Fete, proudly presented by your P and F Committee in conjunction with your Funfest Coordinators and team. It is a day of rides, food, class stalls, market stalls, entertainment, live and silent auctions and much, much, more. Funfest is a great opportunity for you to get involved with your children’s College life by joining the Funfest P and F team.
An information letter was sent out last year outlining some of the important roles which have mostly been filled, however, we are still looking for more of our parents and families to join us on the Funfest team for 2020. If you would like to know more about the roles available, please email us at [email protected]
Not keen on a larger role but don’t want to miss out on the fun? No problem. You can still be involved as a Class Rep. We are looking for a Class Rep for each class in every year level. It is a great way to get to know more people in your child’s year and to collaborate with your kids on their class stalls.
Still not sure if being a Class Rep is for you? That’s absolutely fine. join the Funfest team as a volunteer and we can let you know how you can help. There are plenty of tasks to share around and many hands make light work.
Do you have a business and would like to participate? Maybe you would like to host a stall or sponsor an activity. There are so many ways to get involved; just get in contact with us at our email given above.
We will also be holding Funfest Friday Catch Ups every Friday from 3pm-3:30pm at the Year 1/2 playground beside the Main Admin Building. These began on 14 February so come along and get to know your Funfest 2020 Team.
Now, more on that competition! The more you get involved the more chances you have of winning free ride passes for the day! Simply sign up as a volunteer and you’re in the running for one of the free passes. Simple as that! There will also be competitions for the best stalls (Secondary and Primary) so start those creative juices flowing and bring forward your ideas to make this another wonderful Funfest.
We thank you for your time helping us make this a brilliant event. We are looking forward to this being another successful P and F fundraiser for the College. We look forward to seeing you at our Friday Catch Ups.
