Last week we were most fortunate to be included as a successful recipient of a financial grant from the Bendigo Bank (Samford Community Bank).
The CommunityBank has been very supportive of our school and has presented us with a cheque for $5000.00 as part of their annual community grants initiative.
The manager of the bank Bronwyn Fitzpatrick has been very generous with her time and deploys staff of the branch to assist in our school on a regular basis.
Each Friday you will find one of the community bank staff assisting in the tuckshop and at other events you will see bank staff assisting at swimming carnivals and so on.
The money donated from the bank will go to support the Festival this year and will form part of the funds raised to support the P&C initiatives in the school. Our P&C is working hard to partner with the community bank for the good of all and I commend Suzanne and her team for their leadership in this area.
This is a great outcome for our school and I offer my personal and public thanks to Bronwyn and her team for their continued support and generosity of the Samford area.
