Volunteers Needed - Fun Fair



The St. Philip Fun Fair is our annual year-end event where the entire school community can gather and celebrate the school year before the summer. This is always a big event, with tons of activities for the entire family.  

To ensure that we can continue this tradition, the School Council is seeking volunteers to plan and organize this event. Specifically, we are looking to create a committee of volunteers, with a committee lead. 

If you are interested in volunteering to help plan and organize this event, please reach out to the School Council as soon as possible at st.philip.school.council@gmail.com. Please indicate if you are willing to lead the committee, or you are volunteering to be part of the team.
