Over the past 22 months the Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club has hosted monthly raffles to support the Mullumbimby Public School Parents and Citizens Association.
Each month thirty prizes are raffled with all proceeds being directly donated to the school’s P&C.
So far $14k has been donated and the P&C has spent the funds on upgrading the playground seating, contributing to furniture for use of Out of School Hours Care run by Byron Shire Council, and for Future Focused Learning Furniture in classrooms.
‘Future focused learning is based around flexability, agility and creativity,’ said P&C member Abeila Hissink.
Tables can be set up at a range of heights so that children can stand, sit or relax on cushions in the classroom when they are engaging in their work.
Ms Hissink highlighted that the configuration of the tables ensures that teachers can create a range of different learning environments depending on the needs of the children and the subjects they are engaging in.
