ALOHA RAFFLE

Did someone say DIAMONDS?

We are very excited to announce our first prize in the upcoming Aloha Raffle is courtesy of Sunstate Jewellers https://www.sunstatejewellers.com.au.  Rita has designed and created a gorgeous 18ct white gold tanzanite and diamond halo ring especially for Aloha OCEANfest to reflect the blue waters of the Polynesian Islands. Valued at $5000, the ring is one of the star prizes on offer in the raffle.  Raffle tickets will be available shortly on-line and also in take-home books.  Look out for the hotly contested BOOK BUYERS PRIZE!  Sold raffle tickets butts and money are due back to the PLC Office prior to Wednesday 15th August.

CENT AUCTION

Once again, we will have one of the favourites at OCEANfest - the very popular Cent Auction!   To create the prizes for the Cent Auction, it begins with each class collecting new, donated items based on a theme. Laundry baskets were distributed to each junior classroom and these will be used to store the donated items.

There will be a PRIZE for the Kindy to Year 6 class with the most creative display that best matches their allocated Cent Auction theme. The winning class will be announced before the festival and will receive a Pizza Party!  Your class can either display the themed goods using a table, a wall or even the garden (if relevant) OR, your collection can be simply placed in the basket in the classroom. If you're planning an intricate display, also take a photo of your entry and email it along with your class name to FoP before July 20th. The goods will then be collected from the classroom and Dr Dolling will judge the displays. 

For Year 7-12, PCG groups are asked to decide upon a larger item and pool their money.
