🐝 Weber School Working Bee 🐝
Sunday 13 November
10am - 1pm (max)
We’d love some parent help at school for a working bee on Sunday 13th Nov from 10am - 1pm (max) to build and install shelves in our brand-new greenhouse which has been kindly funded by Tararua Reap, and to help with a few other odd jobs to make our school grounds look amazing before the summer break.
What we need ...
20 lengths of 125mm x 30mm (yard timer) at least 3.6m long
BYO Tools - saws or a drop saw, nails, hammers, tape measures and levels.
Our tamariki are so excited to get into some more hands-on learning raising vegetables and natives in the new greenhouse and the shelves will be the last piece of the project.
Look out for an email and google doc and let us know if you can help and if you are able to kindly donate any of the timber needed, and bring along the tools required.
Thanks so much.
