Chocolate Drive


20/3/2021- Updates: We have had two delays and issues with this fundraiser to date. The first was due to a train derailment in Coffs Harbour, causing the initial delay and cancellation of the Easter box option. The floods through NSW in March then delayed trucks and trains and Cadbury advised that no deliveries would happen in Qld until first week Term 2. We will wait and see that the delivery has occurred before notifying parents/carers of a pick up day/time. I would like to thank everyone for your understanding of the issues we have faced and appreciate your patience. 

If we try this fundraiser next year - the P&C will purchase stock upfront and then offer a 1st in 1st served for availability until sold out. (lesson learnt).

(Notification of delays were emailed and texted plus in weekly snapshot and fortnightly newsletter).

The Earnshaw P&C are offering parents, carers, staff and community members a 'yummy' chocolate fundraiser for Term 1. This is the first time we have run a chocolate fundraiser and hope it to be quite successful in the lead up to the Easter school holidays. Thank you in advance for your support.

Here's what you need to know: All boxes need to be pre ordered, as Cadbury do not accept any return of stock. We have 2 types of boxes available and you can choose to pay upfront for the entire box OR commit to pay the full amount once you sell the chocolates.

We also have 2 ways you can purchase: All orders must be received by 15th March

1: Online via the Qkr app is the easiest method for all - no cash goes missing in school bags or falls out along the way. But of course, we will accept cash in an envelope (fully sealed and taped with students name and correct money).
2: Paper order form

(Please see related links on this page for paper order form and a 'how to' guide for Qkr online ordering app)

Here's the deal: When you order a box, you are committing to sell or buy the entire box on behalf of Earnshaw State College P&C and commit to pre-pay or post-pay the total amount by 29th March. Sell at workplaces, door knock to neighbours with parent/guardian, sell at social/team gatherings.

All orders placed will also go into a draw to win a massive 4.5kg Toblerone worth $121. Any queries please email:


Orders due: 15th March 3pm (online or paper order form to either office)

Pick up your Chocolate box: Friday 19th or Saturday 20th March 3-5pm - Drive thru set up at McKitrick Centre (snr carpark)

Payments due: Monday 29th March in full (commit to pay) (pre-paid – nothing to return)
