Export Quality Lamb Packs Auction For A Great Cause

Export Quality Lamb Packs Auction For A Great Cause

By Admin on 29 June 2017

UPDATE: The lamb packs have been delivered to the winning bidders. Thank you to our school community for supporting a very worthwhile project.

An online auction recently took place via www.nicolaauction.com/bid.php. Packs consisted of a whole lamb less trimmings, neck, flaps etc, vacuum packed and boxed. The lambs were delivered to Macquarie on Tuesday 4 July. 

Nicola Millar aims to ‘make a dent’ through a creative fundraiser.

Stage 3 Peach have been tasked with creating a ‘dent’ project – one of their own choosing, that will allow them to explore what they are interested in.

Stage 3 Peach ‘Dent Projects’ are coming to an end, and there is an exciting flurry of final activity. Lili Sargeant is writing a book on Mixed Media and how to do it for primary aged children. She is also running a workshop for Stage 2. She had the very great pleasure of interviewing Janene Mcanally, professional mixed media artist today in the school library. Janene was able to give Lili feedback on how best teach people the skills of her craft.

On Monday 26 June a group of 20 4th year Medical students visited from the University of New South Wales. The students were able to perform otoscopies (looking at a students eardrum using a special torch) with targeted students and check the students' hearing levels using an automated audiometer. It was an extremely busy day and we were very thankful for their services.
