Changes to working bee schedule for new kinder

We are making some changes to the working bee schedule, because of issues that have arisen with the building works.

Firstly, this Sunday's working bee is cancelled. This is because plumbing works have been delayed by a week, and we need to wait until work on the drains is complete before we can start the garden work. We have also had to delay the remainder of the fencing work, because parts of the supporting masonry need rebuilding.

Instead, we are running a working bee on Saturday to build the kitchen cupboards and benchtops. It looks like we have enough people for that one with people who have contacted me already. For others who are thinking of volunteering their time, perhaps you could consider coming to one of the working bees on the following two weekends when we will need a lot of people to attend.

To make up for the cancelled working bees, we will need to run large working bees on both days of the following two weekends so that we can make headway with the garden, fencing and interior works. Working bees will be held on:

Saturday 10 February - garden work
Sunday 11 February - garden work
Saturday 17 February - garden, fencing and interior work (painting etc)
Sunday 18 February - garden, fencing and interior work (painting etc)

All working bees will be held at the new kinder site at East Bentleigh Primary School, Bignell Rd, East Bentleigh. Working bees will generally start around 9am. We sometimes need to make changes to working bees at short notice so we ask you to please let us know in advance whether you’ll be attending a working bee so we can inform you of last minute changes. This also helps us to ensure we have the right number of people at each working bee.

Please note that children are not allowed on the new kinder site during working bees on 10 and 11 February as it is a building site and not safe for children (we hope that the site will be safe for children by the 17 & 18 February working bees). Older children are welcome to play in the school playgrounds outside the working bee site.

If you are unable to help at working bees, then please consider helping in some other way, such as providing food and drinks for lunch, morning or afternoon tea, or donating equipment or materials.

Please get in touch with Rachel Carey to let us know how you can help.
