The school is exploring options to store all of your Trash ‘n’ Treasure. We will soon be ready to receive donations – although we are likely to have less storage space than we have had in past years. If you can store it at home until closer to the Fete – then that would be fantastic.  In the interim, please put your donations aside, bagged or boxed up securely with contents marked on the outside. All donations must be in good and working order, with no missing pieces.

We want: We do not want:
  • Adults and teen fiction, children’s & recipe books
  • Household bric a brac
  • Games, toys, bikes, scooters
  • Clothing
  • Non-fiction, magazines, reference or text books
  • CDs, DVDs or videos
  • Electrical items
  • Items that are broken or have missing pieces

Plastic jars have started to arrive in at the office, but we need plenty more to make our target of 500 jars – so please keep them coming! Any kinds of clear PLASTIC containers with a lid are suitable. If every school family donated just two lidded, clear PLASTIC jars or containers the target will be easily reached.

We are also asking for donations of content to fill the Lucky Jars. Think small, novelty, colourful and fun. The options are endless – here are some suggestions: stickers, temporary tattoos, novelty erasers, lollies, chocolates, hair accessories, stamps, party favours, chalk, marbles, toy cars, bubbles, pencils, rubber bouncy balls, yo-yos, slinkys, whistles, play dough, figurines, mini Lego kits, lip balm, nail polish, beads and string, jewellery, craft items, footy cards, swap cards, playing cards, novelty stationery items etc etc.

Please bring all your plastic jars and donations to the school office.
