From the P & F President

9 March 2018

I would like to extend heartfelt thanks from the Glennie P & F team as well as my personal thanks to everyone for their support of the Fair on the weekend. What a great day, topped off by a nice shower of rain at 6pm! We scraped through . . .

We will release details of stall takings and net results over the next week or so as we pay all the accounts and allocate costs but we believe it was a success.

I would like to make a couple of individual call outs and apologise in advance as it would be great to thank everyone but you know who you are and you are appreciated!

Firstly our wonderful sponsors. Without our sponsors, we do not get the opportunity to contribute as much back to the school community. Our Fair sponsors in 2018 have been advertised in eNews and the Glennie Fair facebook page and we truly appreciate your financial support of our event, with all costs effectively covered. Jo McSweeney did a great job co-ordinating and delivering on sponsorship benefits for all sponsors, with some of this work continuing well after the Fair is done.

Next, our 2018 Glennie Fair committee – you guys all contributed and were all passionately involved to ensure the event’s success, from planning right through to the day itself – thank you.

Our Fair Retirees – Tamara Hall, Karen Reeves and Tracy Keighran (and their husbands!) These three ladies organised stages; ensured cash was counted and bills paid and did all the purchasing of supplies (and cooked some great dumplings!). Thank you all for your tireless efforts over many years – you will be missed - and feel free to come back!

Our set up and clean up crew – this was a big crew on both Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon – thank you! It certainly is satisfying, particularly on Saturday afternoon, to see the Fair come together, ready for Sunday morning.  Well done to the ladies and gentlemen who assisted. I will call out Mark Ryan, Denis Studin, Alan Beahan, Terry McSweeney and Warren Willmington – these five gents spent a lot of time at Glennie in the last week and I reckon went home fairly tired each day! Thanks everyone!

Part of the setup and pack up assistance comes from the school grounds team - Russell Pugh and his crew. Thanks to you all, there is a fair bit that goes on behind the scenes and we appreciate what you do.

To the many, many parents and students who worked very hard on stalls – good on you all – your hard earned monies raised will be circulated soon and we are putting every dollar back into the school, plus we intend to make a generous donation to Dolly’s Dreams Foundation.

A shout goes out to the many teachers and school staff who helped on or ran stalls, co-ordinated the girls on rosters, volunteered to be dunked, came in to open the aquatic centre, ran the stages and so on – champion effort and thank you.

We would never know how well we went without the efforts of the boardroom team – handing out floats from 7am and counting cash until 5pm – thanks all and particularly Jason Hockaday, Karen Reeves and Julie Meyer – you spent some serious time in there!

In the Development Office, we are very well supported by Tammy, Tina and Tracey – thank you! I also need to acknowledge the trust and freedom afforded to us by the School Exec team. We have the “run” of the school for the week and we appreciate it!

We cannot forget “GF” (who is behind the Glennie Fair Facebook page?) – whoever you are (Christina Lipp) thanks for all the updates and wonderful photos of the event! If you have not joined the page, it is not too late to search “The Glennie Fair” and share the photos and thank yous.

Paul Reedy – what an MC! Paul, you are very generous with your time and did a superb job – a big thanks to you and we will have you back anytime!

Now for two very special Fair committee members who put many days into the event – Lyndal Brown and Shaz Willmington. Lyndal co-ordinated many, many external stallholders, was a great sounding board for Fair layout, co-ran the multi-draw raffle, and helped style the Balcony Bar with her partner in crime, Shaz Willmington.  

Shaz is the person behind the event who ensures the Glennie girls are engaged; liaises with teachers and Heads of House, follows up the many food vendors and comes up with some awesome new ideas every year.  Shaz devoted herself to the Fair and her contribution was absolutely amazing! Thanks Shaz and thanks Lyndal – you are truly appreciated.

As stated above, we will share the stall takings and profits via your parent email account next week – a really great day and we should all be very proud of our Glennie community.

Thanks once again to everyone who contributed to making the Glennie Fair the success it was!

Jason Lipp
Glennie P & F President

We need your help!

9 February 2018

The 2018 Glennie Fair is getting closer now, just one month to go, with Sunday 4 March promising to be a great day!

Our selected charity to pledge funds to this year is “Dolly’s Dream Foundation”, a very worthwhile and relevant foundation to support.

Additionally, the Glennie Fair profits will assist the P & F in making our first of five $50,000 pledges to the School Foundation for the new Sports Centre, being constructed this year.

The success of the Glennie Fair depends on the generosity of the Glennie Community and we need your help.

  1. If you or a friend or a family member have a fence facing a busy road, please grab a corflute sign from the GOSS and put it up for a month.
  2. Like the Glennie Fair facebook posts and share them far and wide!
  3. Volunteer to help out on your year level stall. Please contact the stall convenors in your year level and put your name down for a stint on the day – as little or as much as you can fit in will be great.
  4. We need a band of about 25 set up and pack up volunteers. We need your help on Saturday morning March 3 and at end of Fair on March 4. Lunch is provided on Saturday and there will be a BBQ and refreshments on Sunday night. Just email us back to put your name down – a bit of fun and good way to be involved.
