Bathurst’s first-ever School Starters Picnic was a success, despite the threat of rain! It was wonderful to see so many children and families enjoying the games and the School Starters Parade. Each school starter received a certificate and a book, plus a drink bottle and an apple. Families told us that they loved the whole event and provided lots of positive comments. They said, “everyone was so friendly and excited for the children”, “keep doing it”, and loved that it “got children together that are starting school next year”.
