The fun filled evening will see teachers, parents, students and even local member Aaron Dillaway strut their stuff down the runway in outfits supplied by local retailers.

The event is an initiative of the P&C to raise funds for information technology for the school.

The school currently only has a set of 6 mini iPads for each double unit which each have around 50 children.

Fashion parade coordinator Claire Mollison hopes the event will raise enough funds to purchase more mini iPads for the students.

“We’d like to purchase another set of 6, hopefully more depending on how much we raise on the day,” Ms Mollison says.

“At the moment we’ve got 6 iPads across about 50 kids each, it’s not a lot, we’d like to see that grow.

“I would love to eventually see a class set in every classroom.”

The evening will also include canapés upon arrival, drinks and an elegantly styled sit down dinner.

A silent auction will also be held and some excellent prizes have been donated. Prizes include a $250 gift package from Clem Jones, a $100 gift basket from BA Creative, $50 gift vouchers from Coles and Kmart (Cannon Hill) and prizes donated by Flour and Chocolate (Morningside) and Southside Tea Room (Morningside) just to name a few.

A great atmosphere is guaranteed as the school choir will perform and guests are invited to dress smart casual or in cocktail wear.

All inclusive tickets for the evening can be purchased by phoning the school on 3909 8333, in person at the school’s front office or at the door on the night for $50.
