2017 Family Portrait Fundraiser

Thanks to Michael Overend Photographer, who once again offered the TGS community this wonderful package.  The $100 cost to families is donated to TGS PTA.

The Art Department is a good fit for this fundraiser, and we're really pleased to support TGS student learning with the following extra equipment:

An Adus Mobile LED Projector,

A Canon EOS DSLR camera with 18-55mm lens,

and 5 x Wacom Intuos Draw drawing tablets.

Below is the lovely reply from Francis Potter, HOD Visual Art.

" We are so very grateful for the effort the PTA has put in over the last few years to help resource our department. The photography studio is a proper working classroom used everyday and now with added technical equipment we have such excellent resources for our Akonga to gain greater success. Again, thank you, without your continued support we would not have such fine facilities and we are truly grateful, it makes such a difference. "

2016 Family Portraits Fundraiser

This year we raised $2000, which we have put together with other fundraising this year, towards a major landscaping project at the Ralph Roberts building. This project should be completed by the end of Term 2 2107.

Family Portraits 2015

Thank you to those who took up the offer of the Michael Overend Family Studio Portrait package.

Your support has enabled the PTA to offer $2000 to the Art Department, for building a green screen infinity wall.  This will help enrich the learning experience of both photography and media students, as well as showcase their work to the rest of the community.

2013 Family Portrait Fundraiser

Thanks to those who took up this wonderful offer, we are able to donate to the Art Department around $1100 – to purchase a new digital camera lens, a UV light exposure unit and coating trough.

In 2012 the PTA donated a new A2 printer to the Art Department, which has been well used for high quality prints of student work.
