Balingup Primary School Breakfast Club
The Balingup Progress Association is proud to support the Breakfast Club program being run at the Balingup Primary School with a donation of $800. Mary Taylor has been appointed as chaplain at Balingup Primary School for one day per week and the donation will be used to purchase a variety of foods and resources for special activities that Mrs Taylor will implement to benefit the social, emotional and educational needs of our students.
Some food is supplied to the school through Foodbank but other dietary items are required. It is hoped in the future that the breakfast program will be able to operate on more than one day per week and to have recess and lunches available for students in need. The children can choose between toast, fruit, cereal and milo and are required to wash and dry their own dishes. It is a very sociable way to start their day. The school would appreciate any community members who would be interested in volunteering with the program which operates on Wednesdays from 7.45am for approximately 1 hour. For more information, please contact Mary Taylor at the school on 97641093.
Many locals, once again, enjoyed a cooked breakfast to mark Australia Day. This was held at the Village Green. This event is proudly supported by the Balingup Progress Association and the Donnybrook Balingup Shire.
Over 50 Volunteers attended a Volunteer Afternoon Tea as 'thank you' for their involvement and dedication to making Balingup the thriving town it is today. An invitation was extended to all Organizations and community members for their valued efforts in our town.
In November Balingup Progress Association delivers Fruit fly bait at the general store. This is supplied free to Balingup and Mullalyup residents to combat the fruit fly problem in household orchards and has proved very successful over the years. Re-fills then became available at the local tip or Transfer Station.
The bait is flicked onto trees during the blossom and fruit forming period. Citrus trees also need to be targeted. The system does not affect bees. Info 97641272 or 97641080
