Fundraising enables the school to purchase educational materials and services that government school funding can’t support. The school does not receive additional government funding to support the Italian-English bi-lingual program at the school.
At YPS fundraising is done in two main ways:
Voluntary Contributions – Each year the School Board invites families to give financial contributions. This is the easiest form of fundraising and if received reduces further fundraising pressures. Contact the front office or visit the school website for more information about how to support the school by giving your voluntary contribution.
Fundraising – The P&C runs dedicated fundraising activities including the bi-annual fete, end of term sausage sizzles, Election day stalls, raffles, walk-a-thons, mother and father’s day events, biscotti stalls, auction nights and more. These events rely on the generous support of school and community volunteers.

- sporting equipment
- resources for the autism units and more
