Over 85 drivers and their families and friends will be staying in Merimbula next Monday night, May 19. Following a show at Club Sapphire on the Monday evening, all of the bashers will be heading to our school for breakfast, bright and early on the Tuesday morning (May 20).
"Last year a Variety Club of NSW Coordinator travelled the region to work out the route for this year's NSW AHA Variety Club Bash" shared Principal Michelle Hulme. "I was delighted to accept the offer to host the convoy as I knew that not only would their visit support our school and be lots of fun, it would also support the local community".
Merimbula Public School staff will be feeding over 250 Variety Club visitors, including John Paul Young, who may guest perform with the Year 4 "Bashful Buskers"! (They are quite excited to be learning one of his greatest hits!!!). Students at the school, as well as the P&C, have all been working hard to prepare items for their mini market on the day. Year 5 and 6 students have taken part in photography workshops with local photographer Angi High to produce their own postcards. These will be sold on the day to the clubbers and community members who want to keep in touch with their family and friends whilst showcasing photographs of our beautiful area, taken by the students.
The "World's Skinniest Magician" will entertain the students, families and community guests; while others have fun on the jumping castle, have a hot Ragino coffee, eat a bacon and egg roll or sausage sandwich for breakfast, buy delicious snack packs or take part in guessing competitions and games. The P&C's recently completed cookbook "Tastes of Merimbula" will also be on sale throughout the morning. Members of the public are more than welcome to attend the event with a gold coin donation on entry, further supporting the wonderful learning support programs on offer in the school.
Merimbula Public School has already been fortunate enough to receive $5000 in reading resources from the Variety Club prior to the visit. The school now looks forward to welcoming the Variety Club to Merimbula, learning more about the cars and the great Variety Club cause as well as showcasing the talents of their students.
