Sherbrooke Community School Open Day

I took the day off and headed off with Krysta a bit early to visit Mitre 10 to pick up some briquettes.

I took the girls up to the Sherbrooke Community School. Opal, who was visiting from NSW and Queensland was with us and was very welcomed by her old school friends.

I asked Sue (acting principal), who I had not really ever met before, if Opal could stay for the day. But . . . → Read More: School, learning and insurance

Performance Night

We went to our first performance night for the Sherbrooke Community School as Krysta was in it. There was a bit of disappointment that I did not bring my camera gear, I had ended up gong straight to the venue from work and did not think of it.

Sherbrooke Community School Working Bee

Normally I cannot get to the school working bees because they are on at a time that is unsuitable to working people who have to travel. But I was working from home this day in part because of the Buddha’s Birthday holiday.

As Kirsten had the car, I caught the nice . . . → Read More: Sherbrooke Community School Working Bee
