Yellowwoods is fortunate in having an energetic and enthusiastic parent body (usually moms). A representative is elected annually to give leadership and structure to our functions and fund raising.
Once/twice a term, each Class Mom has a turn to organize our Wednesday ‘Bakerman Day’. The Class Mom encourages support from the relevant parents who are always willing to send in a cash donation towards expenses or an item to sell, i.e. Cupcakes, banana bread, sausage rolls, popcorn, biltong. These funds are used to purchase items needed in their child’s classroom.
Our parents are a great support group to the school for sports, catering, fundraising and general assistance at the school. The parents identify projects and each year, a few fundraisers are held- usually one big project and a few smaller events during the course of the year.
Some of our highly successful events have included the Yellowwoods Country Fair, Luncheons (with guest speakers) popular sporting events and regular family Sunday lunches/steak evenings -usually held on our beautiful campus.
A more committed and enthusiastic group of gals will be hard to find!
