Keep Calm! Our Spring Fair Needs YOU!

FINALWhere can I help?

There are numerous ways in which you can help. At this stage, we need help in the following areas:

  • Craft donations – just craft up some love for sale, any medium – paper, fabric, art, twine – you make it we will accept it!
  • Donate plants – start propagating or potting up!
  • Donate prizes – we need prizes for our Chocolate Wheel and the children’s activities!
  • Sponsorship – a great way for you to advertise your support and your business
  • Sponsor items for the BBQ – meat supplies, sauces, napkins, paper plates
  • Sponsor Milk for the SRC’s Milk Bar
  • Coordinators and/or Assistants for our Stalls and Activities. We have vacancies for:
    • Side Show Alley
      • Lob the Dunny Roll
      • Rocket Launcher
      • Sponge-a- Mate
    • P & C Pop – up! Help us sell our raffle tickets, teatowels and Cookbooks!
    • Craft Stall
    • Chocolate Wheel – we need spruikers to sell tickets, source prizes, spin the wheel and generally have a good time!
    • An assistant for our Lego Competition in the Lego House
    • Plaster Fingers – plastering up the kids in plaster , of course!
    • Just Dance Disco – chaperone the kids as they dance to their favourite song
    • Glow Things – selling our glow products that will just glow as the sun sets and add to the atmosphere of the Fair
    • Showbags – we will source the showbags – all you have to do is hand them out to the kiddies as part of their Super Saver or sell them to those who don’t have a Super Saver
    • Super Saver – distributing food and activity tickets to all those kiddies who have prepaid. A case of marking off names from a list!
    • Photo Booth – we have the photographer! We just need someone to source props, take orders and arrange for printing of photos to be delivered after the fair!
  • Baristas – who doesn’t love a good coffee that is made to perfection
  • Canteen Coordinator and assistants – selling extra yummy goodies
  • Lighting – as the sun sets we will need lighting! You may find a donor to assist here but in any case you will also be putting up the lighting and liaison with the Electrician!
  • Electrician – we need you to ensure the safety of our fairgoers not to mention that we don’t overload and fuse out the whole set-up
  • Floaters – to help with the collection of coin on the day and providing relief to stallholders so that they too can have some fun (and a rest!)
  • Assistants to help set up on the day including:
    • an Electrician
    • setting up lighting
    • setting up tables,marquees and signage
    • Decorating!
  • Carpenter or handy person to assist with creating a free-standing sign, a special stall and a Photo Booth
  • Publicity – creating Facebook posts, web posts, flyer distribution, even gaining some media attention through radio and print!

“Volunteers put the community into community events.”
-Steven Wood Schmader, CEO of the International Festivals & Events Association

Our Spring Fair is in fear of being cancelled…can you do Just One Thing?

We need you to put the community into our school community event!

We are creating a group of volunteers to make our Spring Fair happen, we have lots of small jobs that need to be done. All we need from you is to “Do Just One Thing”.

If you have never coordinated or assisted on a Spring Fair, don’t panic – most of those who have already volunteered haven’t that much experience either. In fact, for our Spring Fairy (the coordinator of the whole event!), this is HER FIRST SPRING FAIR! One in, all in!

In one way or another, we are here to help each other make the 2016 Spring Fair a huge success for our school and most importantly, our children!

Can you run a Stall? 

Running a Stall can be super rewarding. If you have a few friends or family members it can be a fantastic way to help the Spring Fair. Fair Day procedures including how to collect Cash will be explained to you. Would you like to run a Stall? Do you have an idea for a stall?

Don’t be afraid to run a stall! It will bring out the best in you!

Some stall suggesting include:

  • Rocket Launcher –  three children at a time compete against each other to see how far their rocket can go (horizontally, of course)
  • Side Show Alley – lots of carnival back yard type games
  • The P & C Pop-Up Stall – selling our teatowels, cookbooks and other items
  • The Gaming Table – let the kids trade their xbox, PS4 etc games
  • Lob the Dunny Roll – Simply throwing a dunny roll to see if they can get into the toilet!!!

General Volunteers?

If you don’t know what you can do or where you can fit in, we have many roles to fill. There are a range of jobs where you can help. Some are small, some are big, some are simple, some will take more time and commitment.

Can you help with Spring Fair preparation (before the day)?

Some of the roles include:

♥  Volunteer Coordinator

♥  Publicity

♥  Sponsorship – Chocolate Wheel

♥  Sponsorship – small prizes for the children on various activities e.g. The Lego            Competition

♥  Sponsor our 20th Anniversary Cookbook

♥  Donate edible items for our BBQ’s or Milk for our coffee

♥  Join the Steering Committee

♥  Sponsor our Advertising – in return you will receive free advertising on Spring Fair Day and across all our social media platforms

♥  Organising additional marquees, battery operated Eskies etc, etc…

On the Day Volunteers

We have many jobs that need to be done on the day. Can you help? Put your hand up for a couple of hours, you don’t need to give your whole day, just a few hours will also help. Some of the roles include:

  • an Electrician – to ensure the safety of our fairgoers from an electricians point of view: checking all cords are secure, correct power supply
  • Lighting – as this is a Twilight event, we will need to pack up and secure the premises in the dark! Can you assist in setting up lighting or providing additional lighting?
  • Set up on the Day Team – placing tables, erecting marquees, signage,
  • Manning a stall for a few hours
  • Assisting pack up on the day
  • Any ideas, contact us!

Please contact fundraising@tackingpointpandc.org.au with a job you can do, any questions or ideas. We simply would love to hear from you to save our Spring Fair!

Even ONE THING makes all the difference! THANK YOU

You are invited to participate in our “JUST ONE THING” Volunteer campaign for 2016!

We have over 761 children attending Tacking Point Public School with a large number of the children being new to our school this year. Tacking Point Public School and the P & C has a very strong school and family community. We are hoping to build on our school community successes of 2015.

Therefore we asking each family to nominate to do “JUST ONE THING” throughout the year giving all Tacking Point Public School families a chance to be involved in our school community. We are especially encouraging our new families to get involved. Volunteering at the school is a great way to meet people and make friends, assist your child to reach their potential and grow their self esteem. Children love to see their Mums and Dads, grandparents, aunties, uncles and friends helping out!

On this page you will find a link to a list of activities that we would appreciate your assistance with. We ask that you tick just one box (or more if you like!) if you are interested in helping out!

Your responses will be collated and when the time comes you will be contacted regarded your chosen participation. Please be assured that all information collected will only be used for the purpose for which it was provided (refer to our Privacy Statement).

Upon completion of the form you may return it to the school or email a copy to info@tackingpointpandc.org.au. Please ensure that you complete your contact details.

If you do anything for your child this year do “JUST ONE THING” to help them their school and be a part of a very special school  that is Tacking Point Public School and the P & C.

We need your help!

We need your Help

Our families and volunteers have thankfully always freely given their time and support to the P & C. The Schoolyard Twilight Market is being organised by a small group of enthusiastic volunteers however we need a little more help on the night to ensure the success and safety of our market!

We are in need of 5-6 people to help us out mainly in supervising the Kids Activities! This would involve ensuring that kids abide by the rules, taking timed turns and collecting gold coin donations! For the chocolate wheel its a case of encouraging people to buy tickets to win, selling the tickets, assist in giving out prizes and ensuring the safety of our guests while the wheel is spinning!

We would greatly appreciate any time or support that you give!

If you are able to help, please complete the attached form and return to the canteen or contact either Amanda or Glenys (0408619355) or via email to fundraising@tackingpointpandc.org.au
