The Solway College Organisation of Parents (SCOOP) is a group that aims to raise funds for items and activities that will benefit the college and its students.

The money raised from fundraising activities goes towards purchasing items from a ‘wish list’ of ideas provided by students and teachers. The funds from past activities have gone towards items such as purchasing projectors for use in classrooms and gazebos to provide shade and shelter at outdoor school events.

Latest fundraiser – Ferguson tartan scarves and rugs

SCOOP has commissioned some beautiful alpaca scarves ($45) and mohair throws ($199) in the college Ferguson tartan to sell as a fundraiser. You can order these by emailing or filling in an order form at the college office. There are samples in the office reception area that you can check out before ordering. Great for keeping warm and cosying up dorm rooms in the colder months, the scarves and throws also make fabulous gifts.

Honey fundraiser 

SCOOP is also selling specially packaged fundraiser honey. Locally produced by one of our college families, the honey from Hunter Reilly is top quality and totally delicious!

The honey is $10 for a 500g pottle with profits from sales going towards upgrading the college’s fitness centre. You can order the honey by downloading and returning the form below or by picking up an order form at the college office.
