# GIPS Parents' Association (PA) Update

What a fantastic year it has been for the GIPS community with the Parents’ Association being instrumental in making lots of fun activities happen for our children while raising funds and providing volunteer opportunities.


We enjoyed the Evening on the Green, Fathers’ Day Gift Stall, Footy Day special lunch, two Make and Bake sales, a Democracy Sausage Sizzle and a Bunnings one too, a Luxury Hamper raffle, a Parents’ Cocktail Evening, Silent Auction, a family movie afternoon watching ‘Lightyear’, ran PLUSH (Pre-Loved Uniform Shop) and some Christmas fun with the sale of bows and gingerbread houses.

Combined the PA raised over $30,000 with your support – thank you!

The funds raised were used to support playground upgrades and the school’s building fund. Further spending is planned so feel free to email us your ideas.

We look forward to a fun 2023 where there will be lots of opportunities to get involved and help build the sense of community that we all love so much at GIPS.

If you hear of any great ideas for PA activities or events when you are chatting with family or friends over the break, please share them via email at gipsparentsassoc@gmail.com

Thank you to all the volunteers who donated their time to make these activities happen – they never would have got off the ground without you.

A special thanks to the GIPS staff that have provided so much support in the background: Gina, Nicole, Sally and Deb. You are an amazing team and we are very lucky to have you.

Enjoy a well-earned break,

GIPS Parents’ Association
