Once signed up, you’ll receive an information pack and a variety of marketing support materials such as posters, digital flyers and more.


Choose any date in September for the whole school to Scrub Up in blue or aqua for a gold coin donation. The class with the highest fundraising total will win a $50 Rebel Sports or Kmart voucher, so it’s a great idea to encourage family and friends to make a donation to add to your class’s fundraising collection. Students can also enjoy visits from our Mascot and a health practitioner such as a surgeon or doctor.

Find out more here.


Choose any day in September, a week or the whole month to Scrub Up. It’s not only a wonderful way to give back to the community, but you’ll also receive tax benefits for your tax-deductible donation. Fundraising ideas:

  • Donate a percentage of sales
  • Add $2 to each bill or sale
  • Hold a ‘dress down in blue or aqua’ team fundraising day
  • Host a work event e.g. a lunch or dinner
