Fundraising is critical to the successful operation of the Bonnie Doon Playschool and helps keep costs low for parents. Each family must provide a $150.00 fundraising fee per child per fundraising event, which will be collected with the other fees at the Annual General Meeting.


The playschool’s major fundraising event is a casino, whose funds contribute to the bulk of the school’s operating budget, held every second year. During a casino year, each family must provide one volunteer for the casino per child (the volunteer does not have to be a family member). This is non-negotiable and is not covered by the $150.00 fundraising deposit. If your family is unwilling to provide a volunteer for, or is not represented at the casino, your fundraising deposit will not be reimbursed and your child will be withdrawn from the program immediately unless you pay an opt out fee of $800. While this may seem strict, the success of the playschool is almost entirely dependent on funds raised from the casino.


During a casino year there will be one additional fundraiser and during non-casino years there will be two fundraisers with a minimum requirement of $150/event.  Participation by all playschool families is essential to fundraising success.
