Their amazing  efforts  in  2011  and  2012  enabled the school to begin the  process  of  installing  air‐condi oning  in classrooms.  The  P&C’s  fundraising  and    conse‐ quent  contribu ons  to  our  school,  freed  money  in  the  school  budget  and  allowed  us  to  complete  the  air‐ condi oning  process  during  the  Christmas holidays.  Homebush  Public  now  boasts  air‐ condi oning in every classroom!
