Much thanks to the staff, B&G Committee, Grade 5 and 6 parents and children and all the extra volunteers who pitched in for the last working bee of the year on Sunday 15th November. It demonstrated both community commitment to HWPS and that people just love pushing wheel barrows and wielding chainsaws. Working Bee 4 2015 is a serious contender for the best working bee yet.
Completed tasks prior to and on the day include the Coles Grant planting, attaching new wall mounted watering hose, treatment and painting of external walls between the old and new buildings (it is indeed monument grey), covering up graffiti on the external retaining walls, final clean-up of the water tank area of rubbish and removal of stumps, fixing loose panels on the sports shed, clear out of the rubbish bin area, spreading 15m3 of tanbark (may the children forever be able to take tanbark home in their pockets) and the regular maintenance tasks of hazard check + removal, weeding and cleaning drinking fountains.
Next year we’ll do it all again with emphasis on projects such as stabilisation of soil in the Wood Street corner, Art room, Art room decking, Prep outside learning area and the Secret garden. If you would like to find out more about the B&G committee including collaborating on the plans for 2016 we would love to talk to you (Cherie 0457559150). Everyone’s involvement is welcome.
Thanks to all the 2015 worker bees. Signing off until next year, Team B&G.
