Cambridge Primary School

Quality - Tradition – Innovation

Calendar Art

Children complete art in class that is put on a high quality calendar for purchase.  Orders will be taken at the end of Term 3 for delivery in Term 4 (in time for Christmas posting dates).  These make a great gift!


Learn and Earn:  Each year a Learn and Earn Challenge is held. Children are given a list of questions to learn and are tested at school.  The theme for the 2020 round is Kiwiana and will be sent home towards the end of Term 2.  Tests are held in class, early in Term 3. This is one of the main fundraisers the year, please support!


Gala:  Every second year a Gala is held this is a major fundraiser for the school raising approximately $15,000. The next gala will be held in March of 2021. This is always a great community day and requires helpers to assist with the smooth running. In 2019 a highlight was the Zorbs on the pool, and a successful attempt at running a zero-waste gala.   

We are always looking for business sponsors to help with the cost of bringing these activities to the Gala if you know of any businesses who may wish to be involved then please let the PTA know.

We have some on-going fundraisers that we encourage you to support if you need any of the following:


Friday afternoon ice blocks:  Yummy $1 iceblocks are sold by the sandpits each Friday after school (during Term 1 and 4).
