Strawbfest – Chevallum students enjoying the fruits of their labour!
Families from all over the Sunshine Coast are set to come together in a celebration of all things strawberry at the annual Strawbfest at Chevallum State School on Friday, September 7, commencing 5pm.
Continuing on the school’s innovative waste management policies championed by the students, this year’s Strawbfest will be one of the greenest festivals of its kind on the Sunshine Coast.
Students and parent helpers have also been producing t-shirt and boomerang bags for use at the festival.
For the last 31 years, Twist Brothers Strawberries and Chevallum State School have worked together in this unique community event that helps provide additional resources for the school.
Each year, the children pick bucket loads of strawberries in preparation for the festival, which are then transformed into a veritable strawberry feast, including jam, syrup, salad, kebabs, milkshakes and even strawberry daiquiris from the licensed bar.
Coupled with top quality entertainment, it’s no surprise that the Chevallum Strawbfest has become one of the most renowned events on the Sunshine Coast calendar.
