Serve Day

Sunshine Coast

Palmview State School & Palmview State Special School

These two brand new co-located schools are pioneering a unique approach in holistic education. In an effort to achieve their “two schools, one community” vision, they are engaging endeavours that are communal in nature. One of which is their Peter Alexander School Garden Program. For this project we will be assisting with expanding or adding a new garden area. The school will be engaging their landscape architect to create the plans and the Calvary Serve Day Team will help prepare the area, assist with landscaping, add plants, mulch, etc.

Chancellor Park State College 

The school’s multipurpose shed is in need of a paint update. This space is used by chappy Shane to feed over 500 children for the breaky club. The shed is also used to welcome new international students and their families with a welcome BBQ. This shed having a new coat of paint will help to liven up the area and give it a fresh new look to match the other surrounding spaces.
