St John Bosco’s School: fete
I rise to congratulate St John Bosco’s School on its successful fete held on 24 November, which I had the privilege of attending. The objective of the fete was to raise funds to rubberise the school’s playground to make it safer for students to play on. The fete was very enjoyable, with a variety of live entertainment, rides and stalls.
I take this opportunity to acknowledge the very hard work of the St John Bosco’s Parents and Friends Association, in particular parents Angela Santopoli, Katerina Rintoule and Cathy Pannunzio. I also wish to acknowledge the volunteers who during their own time went out and letterboxed almost 10 000 households to raise awareness of the fete. I am proud to report to the house that the fete raised almost $57 000 for the installation of a rubber playground surface and was successful in another way, bringing the whole community together to support this very community-focused school.
