Beanie Festival 2019 – get involved!
The Woodleigh Beanie Festival is now in its fourth year and school leadership recognise the fit of this eclectic event with Woodleigh values and are keen to grow the Festival and make it a major fundraiser for the whole school.
It is based on the Alice Springs Beanie Festival and is designed to be a community building event that brings together students, parents, staff and friends from all three campuses, together with local Indigenous groups, collaborating to promote reconciliation and the arts whilst raising funds to support Woodleigh School’s Indigenous Community Partnerships.
The aim is to have fun and provide our community with the opportunity to be a beanie maker, wearer or supporter. The success of the Beanie Festival depends on the efforts of many.
We are seeking handmade, original beanies from students, staff, parents, grandparents and friends! Beanie entries close on Friday 19 July.
