Once again the Masquerade Party showed how the small but perfectly formed John Colet Community came together to raise money for the solar panels. We made a sizeable dent in the funds required by raising over $18k, which combined with the Walkathon money gets us to around half way towards the $42k target.
The evening was a fun and social affair with past and present parents and friends of John Colet. Indu B started the evening off by singing a prayer and John B did a brilliant job as our MC and Auctioneer, keeping us in stitches with his humour. Mrs Dunn and Mrs Renshaw gave heartfelt speeches of thanks to Mrs Donald and Mrs McKendrick and their replies were warm and humorous. The P&F presented them with gift vouchers for afternoon tea at Gunners Barracks. Of course an evening like this is not possible without the army of helpers who have been working hard behind the scenes for the last few months. Jenny P, Tony M, Glen M, Lucy B, Verity El, Julie L, Cherry H, John B, Indu B, Lucas V de S, Fred H, Rachel J, Carty H, Denise C, Claire S, Christine E, Cheryl Lynn F, Annette Gadsby, Julie Allcorn, all our wonderful Class Parents, Julian Wilcock and Alex Coubrough. I sincerely hope I have not missed anybody out.
In addition on behalf of the school I would also like to thank our sponsors who donated items for us to auction.
