Bake & Book Sale ~ Fundraising Success!

Posted on

We had a wonderful afternoon on Wednesday with our “Bake & Book Sale” for Book Week 2017!  With an assortment of delicious home-baked sweets and a collection of fiction on sale, together we raised a total of $164.70 for donation to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Thank you to all the lovely students & staff members who participated and supported the event. It was wonderful to have some of the girls helping us out with the sale, doing such a great job by assisting to distribute the cakes & keep a tab in counting up the money we received at the end, too! Here’s a few snaps of the goodies… Enjoy! 🙂
