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. 

Sports Equipment Donation Ideas:

  • AFL footballs, soccer balls, basketballs

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.
