Working Bees

Rate this item
(2 votes)

Working Bees at Sacred Heart School have been operating successfully over a number of years because of the generosity of time and expertise that families have given to maintain and build essential services our school has needed. Without the volunteers, many of the projects would have had to be outsourced at a great cost to the school.

As we look around the school there have been some major projects that parents have done at these Working Bees. Our two sandpits, the cricket pitches, the enclosed space outside rooms 15 and 16, the tanbark that surrounds our adventure playgrounds, stairs, and the pathways between rooms 8 and 9 are just some of the major works we have done in recent years.

At our working bees we aim to fit in many essential tasks such as general clean up, clearing of drains, checking and repairs to doors and pathways, sweeping, raking back tan bark under playground equipment, washing portables and drinking troughs, small carpentry, electrical and plumbing jobs and simple repairs if we have qualified tradespeople.

All Saturday working bees begin at 9.00am and finish at approximately 11.30am with light refreshments and a barbecue. There is also  twilight working bees scheduled each year for those families that can't make it on a Saturday. It is a great opportunity for families and children to meet in a different social setting, as well as contributing to the improvements of the school.


SO PACK YOUR GLOVES, BROOMS AND TOOLS AND VOLUNTEER TO HELP OUT AT A WORKING BEE. WE NEED YOUR HELP. EVERY BIT HELPS.
