    I always thought it worked on a pro rata system. Number students dived by stickers collected. Sorta deal.
    Maybe that was my inner child wanting a fairer system. Who knows.

    I only shop there for the stuff on special and few things that coles don't sell. So I have only given my school about 20 stickers total.

    I would question this. We do very well out of earn and learn every year and we only have 27 families at our school.

    We usually get about $400 - 500 to spend and we really value it :-)

    The school my husband works at has about 100 families and the amount of things they get is pretty good. There is 4 schools and 4 kinders in our area that also get a lot of stuff too.

    The example I gave you need 2,932 stickers. To get 1 sticker you need to spend $10 = $29,320

    My son's school is admittedly pretty big (400 + kids) and I've asked about it in the past. We apparently do extremely well out of it. Lots of sporting equipment and other educational things. Not sure of the equation.

    Maybe there are other bonuses somehow as my equations based on info on their website you don't exactly get a lot.

    I'm just confused now!!!

    My MIL who is a teacher had heaps of $$$ to buy new music equipment for her school last time the stickers promotion was on.
    I am talking full class sets of xylophones, some drums, shakers, guitars, and a heap of other things her school did very well out of them.
    Music equipment isn't cheap and I remember her saying that there would have been no way she would have been able to get those items if it wasn't for the families, grandparents etc collecting the stickers. I don't particularly like the big chain supermarkets either but if it benefits kids getting more equipment for learning then I don't have a problem with that, it is a win win for the schools.

    Does anyone know if you have to fill in a whole sheet with the stickers in order to hand it in?

    I've got a sheet almost filled with stickers, but not sure I'll fill it by the close off date next week (I generally do my big food shop at Coles).

    I'm sure if you give the sheet to the school they can fill it up, the preschool dd goes to just has a box so we've just been putting the stickers in and the teachers are sticking them on themselves with some of the kids help. (I did ask them for a sheet when it started but they didn't have them)

    No you don't, you can hand in any amount

    At our local Woolies, there are boxes for the stickers for all of the participating schools in the area (quite a few - the one Woolies services a massive area), so people often get their stickers and dump them in the box on their way out, without even putting them on a sheet of paper
