A great day was had on Saturday at the Bunnings BBQ fundraiser. Not only did we have fantastic weather, we also saw fantastic community spirit! A BIG thank you to everyone who volunteered - it really was an outstanding fundraiser only made possible by those of you who pulled it together, and it wasn't short of a few laughs either! Overall we raised $2,894.05.

The best part is we get to bank the entire sum raised thanks to FoodWorks. All the food and drinks for the BBQ were purchased using the points IEPS earns when you shop at our local Ivanhoe East Grocer.

Thank you once again to the people who rolled up their sleeves to pitch in, to those who visited the stall to buy a snag or two and to all the people who support our school by nominating IEPS to receive points when shopping at FoodWorks - every little bit goes a long way.

A huge thank you must go to Luisa Ford for coordinating the event. Your professionalism and attention to detail was magnificent. We are so very lucky to have your support.
