Between the Bays success!

Between the Bays Festival 2018 was another incredible day. It showcased the amazing talents of our students as well as some of Australia’s best professional musicians. I think we all love Dan Sultan a little bit more now. The festival also brought us together as one school community. Thank you all for your support.

We enjoyed the Peninsula’s best food and wine whilst picnicking amongst the beautiful gardens and surrounds. Families relaxed whilst children ran and played together, taking part in activities, rides and workshops. Between the Bays is the perfect event to get to know other families within our Woodleigh community.

The quality of our student performances on the stage was outstanding and I congratulate and thank White Ivy, Crocs In Socks, Aurelia P., Tabitha P. and the Woodleigh School Choir. Thank you also to Andy Khoza and Jeff Box for arranging the student performances. 

Between the Bays is an amazing day for our school with all funds raised going towards our Community Fund. This fund helps support the various programs and partnerships Woodleigh School has with remote and local Indigenous communities, the Sudanese Homework Club and Woodleigh’s Scholarship Program. Between the Bays helped raise just over $14,000 which will be distributed evenly amongst these programs.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank some Woodleigh School families and businesses that we received financial support from. This money helps support the festival and the Community Fund. 

To KISS Print Services, Lloyd Group, Driver Coastal, JJ Richards, Comp Now, Progress Signs and Endota Spa – THANK YOU all for your generous contributions.

Between the Bays Festival will be back in 2019. Keep an eye out for some exciting announcements later in the year. I do encourage you to come along to the next Between the Bays Festival and help support our school community. It is a great day for all!
