Report

Up & Coming Events

Every year, current families, alumni, grandparents, staff, pupils and friends are asked to participate in a variety of fundraising projects to benefit Winterton Primary School. The tradition of giving is deeply ingrained in our school and community, and without this generosity, we would not be able to continue to build this important legacy.

 

It has been another great year for fundraising!  I am overwhelmed by the generosity and dedication of our small community.  To the parents, the staff, the Governing Body and all those associated with the school, I thank you for your efforts, your support and enthusiasm. The act of giving without the expectation of something in return is the true definition of kindness; heartfelt thanks to all the ladies on the committee, your commitment and service to the school has been exemplary.

Fundraisers are the catalysts of change and without them we would not be able to improve on our facilities and enhance the learning environment of our children.  We have had a very busy year working on the continuous upgrading of the school; thank you to all those involved with these projects.

 

The goal of our fundraising initiatives is to engage as many families as possible, and this year we have had a number of individuals spearhead new and successful fundraisers. As a committee, we thank you for your contributions to our school, and hope we will be able to make these new events an annual occurrence. We encourage you all to support these initiatives – not necessarily from a financial standpoint, but, even more importantly, by lending a helping hand. We hope to create new friendships and build community spirit, all the while focusing on the FUN of fundraising.

 

We look forward to another year of fundraising in 2018.
