Ipswich Special School P & C are currently trying to raise some much needed funds for 16 students and 6 Adults who would love to go to Tasmania on the 30th July - 4th August 2017. When we first started organising this trip, each student needed to pay $1800, however our committed P & C and some dedicated staff members, through fundraising events, have lowered the price per student to $1200. We have a Cent Auction on the 17th March and Bare Foot Lawn Bowls in May, in the hope to get the cost down to $800 per student, if we can go lower than that it would be amazing and a great help to every family. We would love to be able to purchase some weather proof, warm jackets for everyone attending the trip (22 people = approx $2600) if anyone wishes to sponser us we would definitely put the name of your business on our jackets and put a photo of some students in the jackets, in the newspaper and on our facebook page, to help advertise your business. If you could donate or sponsor 16 special needs students aged between 15 - 18yrs old to experience an aeroplane ride, snow, a mini cruise all rolled into one trip to Tasmania, please do not hesitate to contact Ipswich Special School on 3813 5777.
