Come along for fun art sessions at the inaugural Fryerstown School holiday program.  Enjoy exploring a variety of mediums and creating your own masterpieces.  “These workshops are suitable for primary school aged children” says organiser, Denise Button, “and we invite people to attend one or both sessions.”

The first week participants will create a Button Tree artwork.  This is a sensory activity with soft felt, vintage papers and brightly coloured buttons glued to canvas. 

The second week participants will create an Animal Kingdom artwork on canvas.  Both sessions include story times while art works dry. 

Refreshments will be available for accompanying adults to purchase and enjoy in the peaceful Fryerstown School environs.

Session times are: Thursday 4th July and Wednesday 10th July from 10.30am-12 noon.  Cost is $15 per session which includes all materials.  Bookings are essential and can be made online at  For more information  phone 0413 563404 or email

Facilities Coordinator Appointed

We are pleased to announce that Denise Button has been appointed to assist in developing and facilitating community activities programming, and to coordinate hire and use of the old Fryerstown School facilities.  Many of you will know Denise who has a professional background in this field and has been heavily involved in many volunteer activities in the region since she came to live here. We welcome her and wish her every success.  I am sure she will appreciate your ongoing ideas, help and support to make the old school ‘hum’.  Denise can be contacted on 0413 563404 or by emailing
Denise says, “I’m excited to be involved in exploring and developing appropriate uses for the old Fryerstown School. It is a unique building in a unique location which is steeped in history.  It has such potential to become a great space to bring people together for social, educational and artistic pursuits and I have been passionate about this since I moved here 12 years ago.”

We had two outstanding final applicants for the position which made it a difficult decision for the team, including Ron Moore as an independent Chairman. We are extremely fortunate to have such talented people who have passion for Fryerstown and for building our community.
