ABOUT THE GOLD DIGGERS ASSOCIATION
Fundraising at Dunvegan Primary School is carried out by an elected parent committee known as the “Gold Diggers Association”. The Gold Digger Association involves interested parents and teachers who raise additional funds to improve the quality of our school. While School Fees pay for the general running of the School, funds raised by these people go on extras to the benefit of our pupils. Recent extras include the revamping of all ablution facilities for pupils, the South Wing Classroom block, computers in our computer centre. SMART Boards in all classrooms and the face brick perimeter wall around the school.
The first meeting for 2017 took place on Monday 31st January in the Staff Room at 19:00. It was pleasing to see we have some Grade 1 parents prepared to give up their valuable time and so make a contribution to improving the quality of education our children will receive. The Governing Body has set a Target of R280 000.00 for the year – please support the Gold Diggers in their quest.
The Committee for 2017 are:
Chairperson: Robert Aitchison
Treasurer: Noelia Parker
Secretary/Admin: Michelle Smith
Crew : Bernice Jones
Thanks to their kind willingness to do this.
The GDA have formed a Facebook Page for those of you that are into Social Media.
They will keep this updated with up and coming events, basic info and an updated report on where the GDA is with fund raising.
