On Saturday 15th November 2015 We were expecting a visit from State Member, Luke Howarth but unfortunately, he was held up at a previous engagement and was unable to make it. He contacted us later and promised to catch up at a later date. We had prepared a tree planting ceremony but since Luke was unable to make it, in true Aussie style, we improvised. It just so happened that we had a Chinese Exchange Student visiting us that day so we asked him to do the honours. Tony Liu is currently studying at St Paul’s School but will be attending Brisbane Crammer next year so he has agreed to pay us a visit and check out the future growth of his tree.
St Paul’s School visit Bald Hills Bushies
On 16th October, students from St Paul’s Anglican School visited Bald Hills Bushies at the Barungwarra Bushland Reserve. The visit was connected with their Round Square programme which aims to inspire students throughout the world so that their generation will strive for new levels of co-operation, communication and understanding. You can read about the St Paul’s involvement here. By visiting our group, the students participated in one aspect of the programme which involved community service.During the visit we explained how our group started and the work which we have been doing in the area. Students then helped us with our current project which is spreading mulch in the beds near the shed. Students also visited our scar tree and were advised of it’s significance.After the event, several St Paul’s students organised a fund raising project and raised $130 for our group.
