Kindy Busy Bee – Sunday 8th September – Thank You!

What an amazing day! We are so grateful for the generosity and community spirit of the many volunteers who made this event a huge success. The dads toiled over an impossibly huge, old hibiscus tree stump, weighing in at 300kg on removal  – it’s truly amazing what dads can achieve when they pool their energy! The mums dug up the sandpit edges and relined the framing – hard yakka! This is just a taste of the work that took place yesterday.

Special thanks to:

  • The many volunteers – too many to name…who gave up half a Sunday to enable us to achieve such an amazing result.
  • Luke and Marisa from digWA for the use of your equipment all afternoon and your expertise in planting the beautiful Gleditsia Tree.
  • All the Kindy class reps for organising such an enjoyable busy bee.
  • The Floreat Dads for bringing your muscle power.
  • Ann Johnston our Kindy Red teacher, for giving up your Sunday afternoon to help out with the busy bee.
  • Michel and Jane from Amore for spoiling us with delicious coffees mid-afternoon.

What we achieved:

  • removed 2 old Hibiscus trees
  • planting of a new large Gleditsia tree and creation of a tactile herb garden bed out the front for the kids.
  • tidied up around all fence lines and grass edges.
  • relined part of the sandpit
  • trimmed back some of the lower trees at the back.
  • power-sprayed the weather screens and eaves near sandpit and the sandpit equipment
  • installed a leaf barrier between the tennis court and back fence line.
  • levelled the grass hill down to the sandpit to a safer gradient.
  • cleared, tidied and planted out the existing garden beds.

The P&C will also be getting quotes for the following and will be working to get these done in the holidays

  • Removal, cleaning and replacement of the shade sails (Oct holidays)
  • Tree trimming by professional loppers of the large trees at the back (Dec holidays)
