Tumby Bay makes most of Bash visit

On Saturday, August 18 the Tumby Bay Area School was delighted to welcome the SA Variety Bash to the town and school oval. 

After a well-deserved wash down from the local Country Fire Service, the Bash participants converged on the school oval showing off the colourful and creative cars all decked out in their theme of choice.

Of course the school’s favourite was a car belonging to local ladies in car 605 – The Fairies.

The 270 participants were treated to a delicious lunch which the school community had banded together to prepare, cooking up a storm with soup, salads, lasagne and homemade biscuits on offer. 

The absolute highlight of the event for Tumby Bay Area School was the celebration of community spirit demonstrated not only by parents and the fundraising group but by the wider support network who either cooked, prepared, set up or served on the day.

“Our school is truly grateful for the continued involvement and sense of community engagement from our town,” Tumby Bay Area School principal Nicky Prosser said.

She said the local children were mesmerised by the costumes, props, decorated cars and generous gifts from the Bashers.

“It was with much hurrah, tooting horns and full bellies that the 'Bash' left town,” Ms Prosser said.

“We thank them for the opportunity to showcase our fabulous school, build our fundraising opportunities and acknowledge the awesome work of Variety in supporting children in need.”
