Working bees are regularly held at both campuses with the aim of maintaining and developing the school grounds and facilities. They are held on Saturdays commencing at 8.30am until 4.30pm. Parents are able to attend working bees held at either Keilor or Taylors Lakes campuses (or both). An additional working bee is held during the term holiday which prepares the school grounds for the start of each term. Hours are credited as part of the Family Contribution Scheme.
It is preferred that parents stay for the duration of the working bee however if this is not possible hours will be credited for actual hours worked. Time of arrival and time of departure plus home telephone number and signature must be recorded on the sign-in sheet.

If you have a flair for pruning, pack your favourite garden shears and discuss what area needs attention with a Co-ordinator.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
We don't expect you to work in the rain, but there are many jobs that can be done indoors / undercover until it clears. The working bee will still go on.
