Other important fundraising initiatives run by the Parents’ Association include Icy-Pole Friday, the Second Hand Uniform Shop, the Entertainment Book, and Mango Drive. We hope to raise around $4k from these initiatives.

GIPS really value your contributions
Our kids are lucky enough to be enrolled in great school which is well-resourced, has a committed and hard-working staff, an engaging learning environment and a good and growing community spirit. But to keep up these standards, and to continue to improve, we need your help – Get Involved, Purchase a Sponsorship Package or Donate to our Auctions or contact Mal Osborne-Smith for any further information.
