International Market – 16 November 2018

The International Market Organising Committee is pleased to report that our inaugural Market was a huge success on so many fronts, especially given that this was our very first one! The Organising Committee met this week to conduct a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis of the event, in preparation for our next Market in two years time, and the feedback that we had all received from so many members of our school community was overwhelmingly positive.

The primary purpose of this event was to engage the community, to provide our boys with a meaningful and authentic engagement with entrepreneurialism and to support a worthy social justice cause, The House of Welcome and we achieved this purpose.

The Committee, consisting of members of the Lindfield P&F, Parent Volunteers and Lindfield Staff, lead various aspects of the Market and meet on a regular basis at school. We are very appreciative of the drive, energy, time and passion that was given by each person to make the event a great success. We would also like to thank the parents who volunteered on the night with the many tasks that needed doing.

Finally, we would like to thank all the parents and visitors who attended this event, bought raffle tickets, donated to the House of Welcome and brought Christmas gifts along to be donated.

We are hoping to have a final donation amount by early next week and have invited the House of Welcome to our Assembly on Tuesday to receive our financial donation and the many Christmas gifts that are around the Christmas Tree in the School Office.

Please visit our International Market page on SPACES to see who the lucky Raffle Prize Winners are, the amount of money raised and links to photos as they arrive.
