Long weekend working bees

We now have just 4 weeks left to complete all the work at the new kindergarten site if we are to get the kindergarten open for the start of term 2. We're making progress but there is still a huge amount of work to be done. We still need to paint inside, varnish joinery, build cupboards and shelves, construct pathways, finish the fencing, construct garden beds, build a swingset and a climbing frame.

We are holding working bees on Saturday and Sunday this weekend from 9 am to around 3pm. I know this is a long weekend and a lot of people are away. If you are around, please consider coming along to help as we're likely to have fewer helpers.

On Saturday, we will be constructing some garden beds and some wooden balancing beams in the garden, building a frame for a swing set, digging a pathway and doing some painting. Please bring along the following if you have them: drill, driver, circular saw, belt sander, workbench, tape measure, hammers, rubber gloves, shovels, wheelbarrows, paint brushes, rollers on poles & paint trays, canvas drop sheets.

On Sunday, we'll be digging some garden pathways and doing some painting. Please bring along the following if you have them - paint brushes, rollers on poles & paint trays, rubber gloves, buckets, rags for cleaning, broom, dustpan & brush, canvas drop sheets, shovels and wheelbarrows.

We are also looking for people to provide morning tea and lunch at these working bees, so please let me know if you can help with that.

The working bees will be held at the new kinder site at East Bentleigh Primary School (Bignell Road, East Bentleigh).

Please wear solid footwear and old clothes that you don't mind getting dirty - we're working on a building site, there are obstacles around and it's very dusty.

If you can help at any of these working bees, please contact me on:

9521 8278/0425 739 529,

Please contact me to let me know you can attend, so that I can ensure we have the right number of people and advise you of any last minute changes.

Please note that children are not allowed on the new kinder site during the working bee as it is a building site and not safe for children. Older children are welcome to play in the school playgrounds outside the working bee site.

Thank you for your help.
