THE Allora State School chaplaincy dinner last Thursday was hailed a great success by committee spokeswoman Estelle Oloman.

About 140 supporters attended the dinner at Allora State School performing arts hall, with the evening raising $4000 to support the chaplaincy position.

The position has evolved to three days a week, funded jointly by the federal government and Allora Chaplaincy Committee.

The committee, which has existed for 13 years, has hosted the dinners for as long.

Before the committee's existence, chaplaincy at Allora State School was limited to four hours a fortnight when possible.

Since the committee has been in place, the school has enjoyed the benefits of having a chaplain one day a week, with that time gradually increasing.

Thursday's dinner was the first to be held in the performing arts hall and while attendance was down, funds raised increased.

Master of ceremonies was Don Burge and guest speaker was national netball champion Laura Geitz.

The two-course meal was prepared by ladies from Allora's church committees and served by Allora State School students.

The committeehas invited parents to join the organisation.

The committee meets each third Tuesday of the month at 3pm in the school library. Phone Mrs Oloman on 4666 6167 a/h.
