This weekend, 28 and 29 October, Colbinabbin Primary will celebrate 100 years of education.
The Centenary year was officially launched in February with a morning tea, unveiling of a plaque and the burying of a time capsule.
This weekend the celebrations come to a head with a display of artefacts and memorabilia spanning the ten decade history of the school. The school will be open from 10:30-5pm on Saturday and 10:30-4pm on Sunday for all to enjoy.
On Saturday night, over a hundred people will gather for a meal and many an old story will be exchanged. This will continue on Sunday when the school will offer a BBQ lunch complemented by an ice cream van. Refreshments will also be available.
The school’s amazing Centenary Celebration book will be available for purchase. The book has been created through the efforts of School Council President, Iain Downie and principal, Robyn MacLean. There will be other memorabilia on sale over the weekend.
There has been a hardworking planning group behind the weekend who are pulling out all stops to ensure this once-in-one hundred-years celebration is memorable.
All community members are welcome - we would love to see you there!
