The P & F combined Garden Party & Open Day on Wednesday October 28 was a huge success, with more than eighty parents, friends and community members enjoying the warm weather, open classrooms and magnificent morning tea.
Visitors were greeted at the school entrances by SRC members with programmes and directions to events and classrooms.
Special lesson times were organised across the morning to showcase classroom activities, with the JP unit and secondary art room being favourites. Parents also commented on the tech display, garden designs in the library and the primary art-room artwork.
Visitors then assembled with students and staff in the Agricultural Studies garden area and enjoyed morning tea, an Ag Block tour led by Ag teacher Sarah Townsend.
SSO Ali Adams talked about the Garden to Plate programme then principal Andrew Gravestocks took the group on a tour of the school, finishing at the Performing Arts Centre.
The festival Choir, conducted by Deb Schwartz entertained the audience with selections from the Festival of Music concert.
The day finished with the judging of the best 'Garden Hat'
Lots of thanks to the P & F for organising and promoting the day and to the staff and students who helped in so many ways.
