Firstly, a big thank you to all our dedicated gardeners who donated their precious time in 2019, making sure all our gardens and grounds look tip top for all to enjoy. 

Our February garden session will begin Sunday morning,  16th at 8:30 am and finish around 11 am, if not too hot. We are meeting in the Smith St car park, please bring your hat, gloves  and water bottle, we have gardening tools at school to share. Our jobs include weeding, mulching, creating and  tidying up In all areas. 

I realise everyone is extremely busy, but if you have a spare 30 minutes we would really  appreciate your help. 

EXCITING NEWS: Newcastle High School is receiving our $6000 garden package we won!!!  We are hosting a cutting of the ribbon presentation in March,  please stay tuned for the date. 


We would still appreciate your finished oral care items,toothbrush/packaging, empty toothpaste/packaging, any brand and empty floss containers as we will continue to recycle. Dishwasher/dishwashing detergent  bottles, air care items, any brand, used texta/pens/liquid paper products and bread tags. 

We have collection containers in the schools foyer or if you would like to take a ready made collection bag to help with collecting, we would be so very grateful and I am happy to pick up in the Newcastle area.

More recycling details can be found in the latest edition of The Parkway.

Kind regards and I look forward to seeing you, Caroline!
