Web spreads st joey's race day fame far and wide
ST JOSEPH'S Wandal Primary School P and F Association president Debbie Hughes has hit the World Wide Web super highway in a commitment to protect the environment.
She said regular P and F paper newsletters had now been replaced by emails and a new website.
“There are so many additional advantages of an electronic system, including speed of delivery.
“We recently staged our inaugural Hobby Horse Derby on school grounds, as a prelude to our annual major fundraiser, the St Joseph's Wandal race day,” Debbie explained.
“The day was a huge success with lots of colour, cheering and excitement. By the time the kids got home from the event, photographs and results of the derby were already live on our website,” she said.
The website is also playing a major role in the promotion, management and ticketing of the St Joseph's race day, to be conducted as part of the Rocky Amateurs calendar at Callaghan Park on Saturday, October 3.
“Race day guests are able to book and pay for their tickets on-line at: www.stjoeyswandal.com.au, plus receive regular updates.
“The web-based system also manages seating and table planning.”
St Joeys new website, combined with the power of Google, has already attracted guests from far and wide.
“Visitors from Townsville searching the web for something to do in Rockhampton on the first Saturday in October found the site and will attend the race day.
“Other guests will be travelling from Gladstone, Mackay and Biloela to share in the fun, fashion and frivolity of the day, which this year will have an Hawaiian Luau theme,” Debbie said.
When you consider the value on offer, judged by previous years' guests as the most value-packed day on the annual Rocky race calendar, it's no wonder tickets are selling faster than “Fine Cotton”.
For just $70, guests are treated to a magnificent sit-down Acton Super Beef lunch, drink package, Boutique Diva spring fashion preview, and prizes throughout the day, including betting vouchers from leading Australian bookmaker, Vince Aspinall.
Vince has a long and proud association with the little Wandal school, attending as a student, and in later years, a teacher.
So if you are seeking a great day out with friends and family, grab your mouse, and head to www.stjoeyswandal.com.au.Tickets to the race day are selling faster than 'Fine Cotton'
