We need your help

Dear Families,

We need your help!

Some of our children have been working very hard with Geoff, Tim Smith, Judy Hunter, Hannah Briggs, Alison Clark-Brown, Gaby Hood and David McCarthy, to clear a section of the back area of the school grounds adjacent to the P and F Shed ready for our outside classroom which includes an Aboriginal perspectives native garden, vegie garden, and fire pit. Thanks to the efforts of Hannah Briggs. Alison Clark – Brown and Gabrielle Hill, we were able to secure an environmental communities grant from $7500 for the project through the office of Julie Collins.

The Parents and Friends have generously provided $1750 towards the purchase of a shipping container that will become a workshop and storage area for our Hands-On student classes run by Tim Smith and Judy Hunter.

The container will eventually be added to complement the area and provide an outdoor eating area with a range of potential uses and our stage three ambition is to include a pizza oven.

We were wondering if there were any parents out there who have contacts for purchasing a good condition 20 ft shipping container. We need a response ASAP, so please contact Tim on 0417552181 or Judy on 0487143766.

Attached is the above information but with a photo of the shipping container that is needed.
