Fund Raising Committee

FRC - 2015 - Group shot

Fund Raising Committee

The York Fund Raising Committee is a group of parents who willingly give of their time, talents and/or expertise to get involved in their children’s education and become part of the York family.  Without these moms and dads (yes we need you dads too), there would be no FRC and therefore no funds raised which go toward the maintaining and improving of the facilities at York.  A few recently completed projects are:

  • The facelift to the school hall and foyer
  • The purchase of our very own chip fryer (no more hiring)
Future goals/projects include:

The installation of drinking fountains at the new classroom block
Lecture theatre facelift
Staffroom facelift

Fundraising initiatives include:

International evening

Our first and major fundraiser of the year.  This took place on Friday 13 March 2015 and was a resounding success.  It was an evening filled with fun, laughter and delicious meals from around the world prepared by our ‘master chefs’.  Although each stall went to a tremendous amount of effort, Greece, was voted this year’s stall of the evening.  Credit is due to each and every person involved in achieving a total profit of R80,000.

‘Hunger Busta’ day

A traditional Yorkie day where the FRC sell delicious food to the staff and pupils during their school break

School play

Always well attended by the George community.  We serve a light meal and offer a tuck shop facility during interval for the duration of the show.

Various sporting events

We offer a tuckshop facility

Golf day

This is held towards the end of the year and is organised by our Golf committee and assisted by the FRC.  This is always a most successful event well supported by past and present pupils, parents and family.
