On Thursday 28 September the National Volleyball team held their major fundraiser for their upcoming trip.
We were very excited and impressed with the fact that we had sold 109 tickets before the evening began, even more remarkable considering the late change of date. (You can thank the Crows for making the Preliminary Final for that one.)
The evening had a fun and entertaining feel to it as we worked our way through six rounds of quiz questions. Andrew Palumbo did an amazing job as our MC and many of our Volleyball students also read out questions for the rounds.
In between the rounds we played the ever popular heads and tails games, ran a raffle and watched many try to conquer flight with the paper plane competition.
A table full of late arrivals managed to win the night, after scores were tied at the final round. Unfortunately our table of teachers did not even make top 3.
This night was even more successful because of the wonderful generosity of so many families and local businesses.
We managed to raise over $2500 for our trip!!! The coaches and players are so grateful for this contribution.
Our team leaves for the Australian Volleyball Schools Cup trip in Melbourne on 2 December. Please stay tuned to Facebook at this time as we strive to compete hard and hopefully come home with a medal or two!
