Bendigo Community Bank Presentation

Geoff Milward and Rowena from the Bendigo Bank present a cheque to Neil Searle (School Council President), Mr Steve Barry (Principal) and 1J

At yesterday’s assembly Geoff Milward and Rowena from the Drysdale Branch of the Bendigo Community Bank gave a special presentation to our school.

Following the success of the “Switch to Save” Promotion which was conducted earlier this year by the Community Bank, our school was presented with a cheque for $1865.00. What a fantastic result! This cheque was made possible by the bank nominating our school to receive the $15.00 rebate for each switch installed in homes with a 3222 postcode.

Although no firm decision has been on how we will use this money some suggestions have been to go towards the creation of a Life Skills kitchen in the Year 5 and 6 building or to fund the Fresh Fruit Friday program for 2013.

I would like to thank Geoff, Rowena and all the staff at the Drysdale Branch of the Bendigo Community Bank for such a great result and the continued support they give our school. If you use the Community Bank or intending to open an account, please congratulate the staff on what they have been able to achieve for our school.
