Our committment to Baturit SD1 has been going for over 10 years now. The fundraising we have done for our sister school has contributed to many changes and improvements to infra-structure and educational developments. During our partnership, students have had opportunities to communicate with students from Bali, learning of their culture and customs. We donated a few laptops a few years ago, which has allowed some opportunities to share science data and improve communication with teachers.

Each year we have held fundraising events, which are extremely vital to provide better educational opportunities for students that we take for granted. Some of our smaller donations have been sporting gear, writing books, paper and pencils. As a result of our fundraising efforts, we have been able to contribute to more major projects for Baturiti. Projects like renovating the playground, building a canteen and toilet have been much appreciated by staff of the school. Last year we helped update equipment and uniforms of the drumming band. If you get the opportunity to visit, their band is a must to see.

This year our fundraising is going towards purchasing tables and chairs for the students. I was recently at the school in term 3 and the condition of this furniture was very concerning, so our funds cannot come soon enough.

We really do appreciate the generosity and efforts of parents and carers at Alinjarra PS and without it, Baturiti SD1 would not have the educational opportunities they today. If you would like any information about visiting the school, our fundraising and what it’s used for, don’t hesitate to contact myself.

The tables and chairs Alinjarra PS raised funds for have arrived. Suadra is very happy with the new chairs and tables for the assembly area. The next set of chairs and desks will begin to be used in the classrooms.

Term 3 2018

In Term 3, Alinjarra PS students participated in our annual fundraiser to raise money for our sister school in Bali, Baturiti SD1.

On a chilly Wednesday afternoon, we held a lap-a-thon for all students from kindy to year 6. Students and parents got involved and churned out the laps for 40 minutes. It was great to see everyone involved. Again, the generosity of the Alinjarra community was outstanding and we thank everyone for their kind donations.

Our highest fundraiser for the entire school was Scott from EC3 green.
