Fundraise at your School, Kindergarten or Child Care Centre

Most of us know the wonderful care The Royal Children’s Hospital provides children across Australia. Perhaps someone in your school community has been a patient.

Fundraising is a great way for schools, kindergartens and child care centres to show support. We’ve provided some ideas below to get your school started – the sky’s the limit!



PJ Day 

We can’t think of a better way to spend the day than in our PJs!  Students and teachers are encouraged to come to school

dressed in their favourite pyjamas and bring in a gold coin to donate to the Good Friday Appeal. Holding a PJ Day is a great way

for schools,  kindergartens and child care centres to show their support. For more information and to register.  




Donation Envelopes

A great way to get students’ family and friends involved is requesting Good Friday Appeal donation envelopes. 

We can supply every child at your school with an envelope from January for students to ask for donations from their family and friends.




Coin Line Competitions Schools around Victoria hold friendly competitions to see which school house can create the

longest coin line using silver and gold coins. Raid the piggy bank and see which house wins!






Create Your Own Event 

We’ve had bake sales to crazy hair days, we even had a school fill a bus with balloons to guess the number.

There are many weird and wacky ways for schools to get involved. Need an idea?


Don’t forget to share your story with us, we would love to hear what your school, kindergarten or child care centre did to fundraise for the Good Friday Appeal.

We can provide you with a media kit, sample press release, proudly supporting logos, photos and videos you can use, as well as posters and bunting.
