Last week a fantastic team of Fairhills students helped coach and manage 13 Grade 5/6 ‘Hooptime’ basketball teams for Knox Gardens Primary School. To quote Mr George (the Knox Gardens PE teacher AND ex Fairhills student) “The Fairhills students made the day easy for everyone. They made what could have been a dysfunctional day, functional!” We also had a member of the public call the school to say we should be so proud of how our students helped out.
Congratulations to all our Hooptime Students!!!
Basketball Marathon Fundraising Event
As part of the VCAL curriculum students have to do a fundraising project. Year 12 students Dakota, Jacinta and Charisma planned a Basketball Marathon as a fundraising event for our Basketball Team who will be participating in the December Queensland Basketball competition.
The Basketball Marathon was held last week and was a huge event. Students and staff participated throughout the day and the stadium was filled with lots of laughter, sweat and banter.
The event could not have gone ahead without the following teachers help – Ms Power, Mr Harberger and Mr Burrows.
On behalf of the Queensland Basketball Team a huge thanks to the VCAL students for coming up with the idea and running the event which raised just over $500 to go towards their registration costs.
