Funds will help race towards a library at Rosella Park
AMONG the fashion and the racing fields, there is an another important aspect to the race meeting at Gladstone Turf Club on December 1 .
Funds from the gate entry and luncheon will go towards Rosella Park School to kick-start its fundraising drive towards a new library.
Principal Kate Russ said it was a major goal for the school.
"It's a resource all students deserve, an environment that is motivating and engaging to learn in," Ms Russ said. She said it would aid in the students' development.
"A library would enable students to be in a different environment, surrounded by resources focused around learning."
With the facilities the special needs school had, Ms Russ said there was no opportunity for students to interact.
"Currently, we have a really small room that houses the resources."
