RPA Organizes a Fundraising InitiativeOn Friday, 1st April, the Remarkable Parents Association (RPA) in combination with Remarkable Primary School (RPS) and Amisfield Wine Company launched an interesting fundraising initiative for the RPA at "Great Grape Stomp" in Queenstown.

Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc grapes were donated by Amisfield wine Company for 279 pupils of RPS to Stomp. A six year old Pupil, Ollie Ridd started the stomping and won applause and shouts from students and parents, parents after winning labeled the competition as Remarkable's "Squish, Squash, Squelch". While appreciating the generous support and expertise of Amisfield wine Company, RPA Chairperson, Tracey Pedersen said that it was thrilling to see every child participating in the activity.

The stomping has initiated a 14-month long fundraising initiative for the RPA to raise money for the school to purchase essential books and resources for the information centre. Besides the vigorous and noisy stomping of the grapes, an exciting learning journey for the school has also been launched. It has been told that in the coming weeks the children between 5-10 years old will be learning to make cheese, bread, grape jelly and ginger beer.

The bottles of Remarkables Squish, Squash, Squelch Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc will be available in the market for purchase at the end of the year followed by premium Pinot Noir in June 2012.
