How You Can Help

Thank you to the many people who have offered their assistance in a variety of ways with the Open Day and Fair. There is still a lot to do in the lead up to the event and there are many ways to get involved:

To make this a great Open Day and Fair, we need donations from our PLC Sydney community:

BAKED GOODS

  • The Cake & Treat Stall need your donations and appreciate any cake, slices or biscuits you can offer.
  • Cake boxes will be distributed to girls in the Junior School and Senior Students can collect boxes from Mrs Kidd. If you would like to make additional donations, spare cake boxes will be available from the offices at Evandale, Hamilton and Senior School Office.
  • Due to allergies in the school community we do ask that donations do not include nuts. All donations should include a list of ingredients on the outside of the cake box.
  • We will be offering prizes for the best decorated cakes from Evandale, Hamilton and the Senior School. If you would like to enter your cake in the competition, please write the student’s name and class on the cake box.
  • Cakes should be delivered to the Boarders’ Veranda on Friday 11 May prior to the start of school. We will also accept cakes on the day. Cakes that require refrigeration should be delivered on the morning of the Open Day and Fair.

To volunteer your time and baking prowess at the Bake-Off Working Bee on Friday 11 May, please register as a volunteer. Baked goods are needed for a variety of different stalls such as the Easy Oar Café.
