The link to the attached document contains information regarding the items for sale at the Earthquake Fundraiser. Orders can be placed from September 12 – October 3.
The school receives money back from each item sold to help buy our Super Tanker (potable water). This super tanker means we no longer need to buy tetra packs or foil packs of water. The water is potable for five years and then can be used to water the garden or any other activity. Each five years we buy a ‘water purifying tablet’ which we add to tap water. This stabilizes the water and keeps it good for five years.
Orders can be given to Cort at the PAC BBQ (you can use Visa on the day of the BBQ) or you can pay by cheque or cash to the PAC box (fundraiser file).

THRIFTY FOODS SMILE CARDS
We are excited to announce we have been approved once again for the 2019-2020 school year to take part in the Thrifty’s Smile Card fundraiser. For every purchase made with a Strawberry Vale PAC Smile Card, 5% comes back to the PAC (up to a maximum of $2,000). The proceeds from this fundraiser goes to the purchase of Apple iPads for the students to use.
THAT’S IT! 5% OF YOUR CARD LOAD WILL BE DONATED TO THE STRAWBERRY VALE PAC. It all adds up and all you have to do is carry the card with you! Contact SVE PAC at firstname.lastname@example.org to pick up your card. Please load up your cards right away and get shopping! If you need extra cards to give to family and friends, please come to the school office.
PARTICIPATING IS SIMPLE, AND THERE’S NO COST TO YOU.

- *Important: Card load must take place before groceries are rung through. You can pay with cash, debit or credit card.
- Pay for your groceries with the Smile Card.
- When your card is running low, load it back up to continue supporting us.
BOTTLE DRIVE & TREE CHIPPING
Each January, a Bottle Drive and Tree Chipping event is held at the school between 11am and 2pm. Families and neighbours bring their bottles and undecorated Christmas trees to the school for recycling. Parent volunteers sort the bottles. Families dropping off their trees make a donation to have their trees chipped on-site. The money raised from this fundraiser is usually allocated to enhance nature/environmental education activities and outdoor beautification of the school such as the Nature Play Perimeter Pathway project.
MOTHER’S DAY FLOWER BASKETS
Each April, families are sent an order form to purchase hanging flower baskets and bedding flowers (for Mother’s Day and/or for spring planting). The campaign usually runs for two weeks. The week before Mother’s Day, the flowers are delivered to the school and families pick up their orders.
Strawberry Vale School has a Co-Op number that any family can use when purchasing gas at any Co-Op location in Victoria. The number is #23650.
