Throughout the year Milawa primary school parent and friends committee organise several events to raise funds for the benefit of our students. We are currently raising money towards the redevelopment of the outdoor space at Milawa Primary School with additional gardens for growing veggies and a shaded area with picnic tables where students can eat lunch. We are working in collaboration with the horticultural students at GoTafe Wangaratta.
