Also a hugh thank you to our fabulous fundraising team, including Margot, Kelsey, Josh, Kevin, Breanne, Clare, Jessica, Tanya and Peter.

Checking in with Teddie Primary

May 25th, 2014


Evelyn and John (Engineer) recently visited Teddie Primary School to check on the structures we built last summer. There are a few cracks to repair as the building has now settled and the new classrooms need a coat of paint. The hardest part was getting there:)
