Arguably one of the most beloved spaces at Blue Gum, the Artyology studio is opening it’s doors for family and friends and our resident specialist Mikki Trail will give us some insight into the magic that’s being created in Artyology at both Hackett and Dickson campuses this year.
So come and join us for a fun arty evening Wednesday 9th of August at 7:30pm at the Hackett Campus.
Each year the whole Blue Gum community comes together at our Hackett campus to eat, drink, and be amazed at the explorations put together by our students and educators for us to enjoy.
As usual, the Families and Friends of Blue Gum will be hosting a range of food & drink options to purchase on the day, and we’re asking for volunteers to bake and/or help serve on the day. Sign up at https://signup.com/go/eYWXWHM
Come and join other Blue Gum parents to walk and create in a natural environment. Bring your sketch pad or camera, a notebook for creative writing, or even your needles and yarn; any portable art or craft.
This is a get together for adults in the Blue Gum community (not the kids this time), a chance to connect with nature and other parents while developing our creativity.
Following the Annual General Meeting on Wednesday last week we now have a new Families and Friends of Blue Gum Committee, consisting of 16 members! (The largest committee in many years):
President: Alex Reale
Vice-President: Simon Geach
Secretary: Toni O’Keefe
Treasurer: Grant Bond
It is great to see so many members of the community wanting to participate as well as a good mix of the school’s classes being represented on the committee for the coming year.
Just before the voting took place we had the opportunity to hear about plans for the new Hackett preschool campus from Michaeli.
The school’s grant application for a new preschool at the Hackett campus has been successful. The project team is now busily working toward a start date for building in April 2017. Looking forward, the Dickson and Hackett preschool campuses will work together with Scribbly Bark and Iron Bark to form a new Early Childhood Team which will also work more closely with universities as a centre of research.
Next steps following commencement of building work during April 2017 includes a new enrolment process being developed, the preschool opening for the start of the 2018 school year, and finally will be the welcoming of the Hackett preschool into the Blue Gum community.
