WHY WE FUNDRAISE?

PUTTING THE FUN IN FUNDRAISING

All the funds raised by the FFH are spent to enrich the school community and the experience of our children, throughout their school journey. 

When spending raised funds, the FFH has short, medium and long-term fundraising projects and goals. Contributors to the FFH, through participating in activities and events, enable all of us to see these projects completed and goals fulfilled.

Regular FFH meetings are held either virtually or at agreed venues and all parents and carers of enrolled Highfields students, are welcome to attend. At these meetings, in collaboration with the school, short, medium and long-term spending is agreed upon along with time frames.
