A great time was had by all at Pocket School’s Winter Festival, not least by our photographer Jeff Dawson

More than 1000 people descended on The Pocket School Winter Festival on Saturday.

Kids and adults alike were engaged with family yoga and Zumba, great performances on the music stage, sustainable workshops for adults in the new outdoor classroom, delicious food, market stalls, kids craft activities and emergency service displays.

All money raised from the event will go to support a new music program starting at The Pocket School in term three and the purchase of extra reading resources for students.

Principal Will Glasson extended a big thank you to all of the community members for their support of the event


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
