It is important for the RPC to feedback to the parents how Rokeby has chosen to spend the money raised by you as parents. Without the support of parents in attending social events, donating gifts, baking cakes and much more, none of this amazing fundraising would be possible.

The RPC would like to thank each and every parent for their time, donations and continued support.
