The sports equipment donation bin will be in the Primary Forum from Friday 9 September – Friday 23 September for students to bring their sports equipment donations in. Gold coin donations will only be collected on Friday 23 September.

Fair Game takes your sports equipment to some of the most remote and under-serviced communities in Australia where it helps remove barriers to participation in sport and fitness activities and supports a healthy lifestyle. The Fair Game Recycle and Donate program distributes over 6000 items a year having a positive social and environmental impact.
