As always there are many wonderful achievements to celebrate such as:

  • second prize in the school section of the Gympie Garden Expo’s Garden competition
  • Charlie Kingsley winning an iPad for his class
  • installation of the new library shelving (thanks to Mrs. Dargusch, Mrs. Lane and all of the wonderful volunteers who helped out, moving over 10,000 books is no small feat!)
  • 11 students at Gympie Zone Cross Country and
  • 1 student competing in the Wide Bay Soccer Trials

Garden Open Day Considering it was a patch of lawn two years ago, just look at our garden now – we have come a long way since then!

The team of judges was very impressed with the standard and extent of our young garden.  They particularly liked the living tunnel created by Madagascar beans and gourd plants and the passionfruit vine growing on a fishing net.

As part of Eat Local month, visitors toured the kitchen garden at an open morning and ate Devonshire teas with rosella jam made from our very own fruit.
