Fundraising at Vauxhall School

Why we fundraise

For many years now, the parent community has been highly successful in raising additional funds for Vauxhall School. Funds raised have gone towards extra learning assistants in classrooms to help keep student/teacher ratios low, new student and teacher equipment, sports equipment, building the school hall, heating the school pool, solar panels, ICT equipment, and more that our children today utilise and enjoy. 

Fundraising target 2019

In agreement with school management and the Board of Trustees, we are aiming to raise $30,000 in 2019. 

The main portion of this target will be used to fund the school’s learning assistant and staffing levels (which are not completely covered by the Ministry of Education). This is in line with the 2018 school survey results which showed a high number of respondents keen to continue funding additional learning assistants in our classrooms from the fundraising budget in order to keep student/teacher ratios down. 

Funds raised this year will also pay for new interchangeable basketball and netball hoops for our concrete courts. We’ve had a lot of feedback that this is a welcome spend and will relieve a lot of pressure on the courts during busy playing and training times.

We’re very excited about the fundraising initiatives outlined above and hope to hear from many of you expressing your interest in lending a helping hand to raise funds for our wonderful school.
