The Geham School ‘Spring into the Country” Craft Show was held on the 21 and 22 September 2013 and has been hailed a big success.

The school’s P&C annual fundraiser attracted 65 stallholders for the event and more than 1100 people attended over the two days. “Support from the community has been fantastic,” says the Craft Show Coordinator Viv McCollum.

Funds raised will go towards building an outdoor education facility under the 120 year old “Virginia” oak tree which is a major feature in the schools grounds. The tree was planted in the 1890’s by a local family in memory of soldiers returning from the Boar War. The tree has grown over the years to now cast a huge canopy of shade where the kids sit for lunch on hot sunny days and the Spring into the country Café have alfresco dining during the craft show.  “To sit under this tree is a really relaxing experience, and the plans to utilise it as part of our school’s education system is really exciting”, says Viv.
