Working Bee Sunday 13th November

Parents AND children are invited to help out with the working bee on Sunday 13th November 8am-12pm.
Most of the work will centre around clearing out some of the garden beds and spreading some new mulch. There are a few trees and bushes that could do with a bit of a clean-up as well and a tidy up of the International Gardens area.

What to bring.
Wheelbarrow/buckets
Rakes….lots and lots of rakes 😉
Shovels
Hedge trimmer
Secateurs/pruning cutters
Garden/work gloves
Insect spray
Sunscreen
Water bottle
Positive can-do attitude 🙂

There will be a sausage sizzle provided for all the amazing helpers. Work up an appetite and reward yourself with a sausage sanga and a cold drink.
So, get the word out and let’s gather as many people as possible to help improve our school. Even if you can only spare 30 minutes, your school community will greatly appreciate it. Please register your interest and rough times at the following link.

QUADFEST – 20 May’21: What a fantastic festival of impressive art, performances and music. A massive thanks to all the amazing contributions to the QuadFest Bake Sale. The tables were overflowing with super delicious treats and sweets, so a huge thanks to all – and the testimony to the success was that not a single crumb was left over. It looked amazingly delicious. The sausage sizzle was a great success too – some 360 sausages and onions later… A special thanks to the parent volunteers who helped out on the day – so greatly appreciated!
