I'm grumpy. Well a bit annoyed at conflicting messages. A school fundraiser for general funds to buy whatever. But it is chocolate. Hate it. Hate schools fundraising with it. They force heathly eating into students , then send chocolate home for them to sell?
Not in this house. It isn't leaving the school. I'm writing to the powers that be and telling them why.
First time ever in 12 years at that school. I hope a few other parents join in, as I know a few are not happy. I think I will donate the money to Hospice NZ in memory of my lovely ex-principal instead.
(and I know all about school fundraising and how schools always need money. I am on said school BOT and know finances in and out and I also know it all where I work. Where I work, we get very, very little from parents being a decile one school. Hence why we need every single extra cent we get from the government). But chocolate? No.
