To further connect with our local community, we have created a fundraising initiative incentre to support local schools.
Each term three local schools fundraising initiatives are supported with participating schools receiving a dedicated Voting Box at our Indooroopilly Shopping Centre’s Information Desk (located on level 2) where customers can contribute a token to their preferred fundraising initiative.
To qualify for this initiative, schools are required to provide a photo and a story about why they require the funds and the benefits they will bring receiving a total of $3,500 in Indooroopilly Shopping Centre Gift Cards to help fund their purchase.

ST BRENDAN'S CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL
Fundraising Initiative: Purchase eco science kits, microscopes, compost kits, books and resources to build a whole school focus on sustainability.
The National Curriculum requires students to work in the cross curricular priority of sustainability. The priority is futures-oriented and calls on students to act sustainably as individuals and to participate in collective endeavours that are shared across local, regional and global communities. St Brendan’s is a dynamic community and we are hoping to create a whole school focus on sustainability and this will require the purchase on new books and general reading materials, eco science kits, microscopes and composting kits. It is our goal to provide students with a range of real life opportunities to act locally but think globally. Purchasing a range of resources will ensure student have access to broad experiences and in turn quality educational and life long learning outcomes.
