Entertainment Books

The current fundraiser for Stromlo High P&C Association is coming to an end.
‘The Entertainment Book is a local restaurant and activity guide which provides valuable offers from the finest restaurants, activities and hotels’.  New to the book this year is Crust Pizza having 3 separate vouchers for 1 free large pizza when another large pizza of equal or greater value is purchased.  So if you use the 3 Crust Pizza vouchers over the next 11 months with a large pizza being about $20, that’s your $60 back.  There are also many vouchers for everyday purchases such as groceries, petrol and more.
The 2013/2014 books are valid until 30 June next year and are $60.  $12 from each book go to Stromlo High P&C Association to fund purchases for the school.
For more information about The Entertainment Book , go to or please go to to order your book(s), as this is set up specifically for Stromlo High P&C.  There is also now a free postage option so you can get it sent direct to your home.
If you don’t want to order online, please contact me on
