Middleton Grange has four major fundraising thrusts each year:
Middleton Evening Market
A not-to-be-missed highlight held from 5-8pm on a Friday late November/early December each year. Middleton Evening Market is a new take on the Fiesta, famous for fun and quality bargains, with plenty to entertain young and old and everyone in between. There are games, face-painting, a live auction and much more to be had. Select your picnic dinner from the wide variety available at the food tent, get your Christmas shopping underway, holiday reading from the book stall, and makeovers from clothing, plants and the white elephant.
Come along! Bring the extended family and join the atmosphere.
Entertainment Membership – Book & Digital options
On sale from late March each year, and distributed around mid-May, Entertainment Memberships more than pay for themselves with valuable discounts for many restaurants, cafes, hotels, rental cars, entertainment outlets and more. There are two types of Entertainment Membership:
- Book membership (register your gold card to get additional savings emailed to you during the year)
- Digital membership (Apple and Android)
Purchases can be made through the school (information will be sent with pupils and by email) and online at the Entertainment Book website.
Mufti days, the 40 Hour Famine, a ‘Workers Auction’ and Eastercamp Op-shop are a few of the annual fundraising activities the school holds to support the work of World Vision.
