China Fundraiser a Smashing Success

Well done to all of the China trip students and their families for their brilliant effort in raising $2520.10 at their inaugural trivia night last Saturday night. If you noticed that the canteen and parents kitchen looked a little cleaner today, that would be down to the hard work of a couple of parents and students who scrubbed tables, decorated the blackboard and cleaned the windows in preparation for the evening.

Nine teams (all named after Chinese Star Signs) battled it out for the honour of being the ones who knew the most (possibly) useless information – and that honour went to the Mighty Roosters! Congratulations team!

Mention must also be made of the dancing lions, the splendid fan dancers, and especially Harry, Charlie, Hoagie and Lucy – the courageous China Trip students who acted out scenes from movies – IN CHINESE – for the teams to guess. It wasn’t an easy thing to do and they were fantastic.

Without the generous spending power of those who came, we would not have achieved such a great result, and we really appreciated all of the donations we received from families and staff.

It would not have gone ahead without a lot of dedicated work from the LOTE (Chinese) Department – so thank you so much Jenny and Hong and Lucy and Katie and Lijuan! It really was a fun night and general consensus is we should have another one next year! So if you missed out on seeing your teachers dancing around with a bucket on their head or doing a special fan dance…maybe you need to put next year in your diary.
