High tea a scrumptious hit for school fundraiser

FOR the next 10 years The Colours of Spring High Tea will be on the must attend list for Biggendenites.

On Sunday at the Biggenden Memorial Hall, patrons were greeted with a beautifully decorated room complete with scrumptious food.

The brainchild of Teresa Buchbach and her mum Helen Hetherington, the high tea was a hit with all who the 80-plus who attended the Dallarnil State School fundraiser.

P&C president Libby White said Teresa had felt guilty she couldn't always assist the P&C by attending meetings and fundraising activities as she worked away.

"They came up with the idea of the high tea," she said.

"Helen and Teresa have done an absolutely fantastic job creating all of this

"The support has been amazing."

The love of cooking has been passed down through the generations from 92 year old Beatrice Jones to her daughter Helen who passed on the passion to her three daughters who all attended Dallarnil State School like their dad, Errol.

Now with daughter Charlotte at Dallarnil State school and 3-year old Alexander to follow, Teresa suggested a high tea would be on the social calender for the next 10 years.

Mrs Buchbach said she just loves to cook.

"If I wasn't driving trucks for BMA at Blackwater, cooking is what I would be doing as a career."

Best dressed lady was Andrea Kelly while Estelle Aberdein wore the best hat/fascinator. Best dressed child was Alexander Buchach.

Mrs White said there were a number of projects on the go at the school with a new cubby house complete with sail over the top.

"Plus we have applied for a multi-purpose court so the children can play undercover on hot summer or for those wet days if it ever decides to rain again."
