Family Friendly BBQ

Last Thursday was our Family Friendly BBQ lunch complete with many performances which included a majority of the students.
Despite the weather, non-stop rain all day, we had a fantastic time with a good turn up of families coming along to share the fun.

Many many thanks to those who helped on the day. These included John Jones from the Extended School Hub (which provided funding for the day) and Gary Griffin, also the Rotary Club of Eaglehawk for the loan of their BBQ and their help with the cooking.
Parent helpers included Kelly Carter who prepared the food, Karen McNaughton who cleaned up, and Belynda Thompson and Tracy Slorach who were there at both ends of the day helping out. Also to Wendy Betts, and Dan Williams and his Eaglehawk Secondary College students who also lent a hand.
Of course Skip was there with the choir to launch their latest CD
– ‘Girls Like Boys Like’, Tracy Slorach performed with her lunchtime belly dancing students, Marli Frank’s funk dancers performed and we also had the Prep/1 and 1/2 grades who each performed a number. Thanks to teachers Dave and Sharon for pulling those performances together on very short notice. Finally the grade 6 students presented infor- mation about their careers projects which they have been working on all term.

Gordon McKern was also there and presented an Honour Board of local businesses who are all support- ing the school as we move into the future. The Board should be on display very soon if you want to check out which businesses have been supporting us. One local business which deserves a special mention is the Eaglehawk IGA which again partially sponsored our lunch.
