Bunnings Barbecue funds

The school’s sausage sizzle and cake stall at the Coburg North Bunnings last Sunday raised almost $2300 and about $980 respectively. A big thank you to all the bakers who supplied goods and to the volunteers who helped sizzle and serve on the day. A special thank you to Kirrily and Gemma for organising the event.

Father's Day Stall money

Meanwhile, this year’s Father’s Day stall raised about $3650 for the school. A big thank you to the dozens of volunteers who crafted and baked, or helped out on the day. And hats off to Justine and Georgie who co-ordinated this and the Mother’s Day stall, both of which requires a mammoth amount of work and logistics.

Footy Pie Day deadline

Remember Monday, September 9, is the cut-off date to pay for any orders for the Footy Pie Day lunch, either via Qkr or by returning the order form with the correct money.

If you can help on the day (Friday, September 13) – particularly between noon and 2pm – please email Meredith Dimsey at

Plants for Playground Extravaganza

Hold off buying those summer seedlings, because you will have the pick of the … crop, at the school’s Plants for Playgrounds day on October 19.

If all goes to plan, you’ll have a choice of tomato plants, chillis, eggplant, pumpkin, cucumber as well vegetables and herbs. There’ll also be natives, indoor plants, flowering plants and hopefully some ferns.

The event will also feature fun, plant-related workshops, a barbecue and cake stall.  For more information see (you don't need a Facebook account to access the link). Tell your friends, tell your family, tell the world. For more info, or to get involved in propagation, or if you’d like to run a workshop contact or on 0400 197732.
