National Féte Research Project

Primary schools are invited to take part.in this first large scale survey of school fétes in Australia.  The data will be analysed and shared freely for the benefit of future féte organisers to help save time and resources for fundraising volunteers and will be available early in 2018.

Areas to be explored include challenges with volunteering, logistical issues, innovative ideas and what schools find to be most successful. Even schools that have not held a féte are encouraged to participate, as information is also wanted about why schools choose to not run one. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and will remain open until 13 October.

Parent bodies that complete the survey will be eligible to enter a competition to win one of three Vegepod Container Gardens (valued at $498 each) for their school.  http://bit.ly/2vEMR3d
