With the help of our Supporters, Ivanhoe Primary School has been fortunate to be able to make many improvements, including:
2015 New Sports Area from fundraising!
In 2015 we asked the students how they would like the school to spend some of our fundraising money. The School Council approved the installation of a fantastic new multi-purpose sports area between the school hall and the soccer pitch, using proceeds from the 2014 Walk-a-thon and 2013 Twilight Fair. Now the students have access to two basketball / netball rings (reversible) and a handball court, which can also be adapted for use as a volleyball court.
2014 Walk-a-thon - over $24,800 raised
Another fantastic power walking effort by our students raised a record amount this year - well done! (and of course a big thanks to all the parents who helped on the day and collecting sponsorship).
School Council will soon be considering projects for the funds and it will go a long way towards helping the school with the ever-increasing costs of school resources - including a significant increase in computers this year.
2013 Twilight Fair - over $65,000 raised
Funds were raised through a combination of direct Sponsorship, a large Silent Auction and Raffle and the many fantastic Twilight Fair activities and stalls on the day. Some of the key things the funds have or will be used towards include:
- 10 new iPads so we now have a full class set available for use
- 4 new interactive projectors for our new classrooms
- New Air conditioners
- New playground equipment (coming soon) including basketball/netball rings & monkey bars
- New shade sail
- Additional Sports uniforms
- Plants and landscaping works
2012 Walk-a-thon - over $17,000 raised
Thanks to the foot-power of our students the walk-a-thon was a huge success. One of the major projects resulting from this event was the redevelopment of a softer play areas for our Foundation Students on the asphalt area where they line up for class. Now they have a soft rubber surface and some small rubber mounds to sit on more comfortably (not to mention saving those scraped knees).
