Walk and Talk in memory of Jan Gorr

Saturday September 4th at 10am at Robinson Reserve

At 10am on Saturday 4th September 2010 we will walk along St Kilda beach - one of Jan’s favourite locations…. travelling north 1.9 km towards St Kilda Pier where we will rest for coffee, before our return walk.

Amanda Gorr, Jan's daughter will be on hand, along with some JGF Board members to answer any questions you may have about the foundation, and the work that has been done so far.

We will meet from 9:45am at Robinson Reserve, situated at the junction of Glenhuntly Road, Barkly Street and Marine Parade. There is plenty of parking in local streets around this area. We would love to see old and new members of the Foundation.

Any donations on the day will be much appreciated, donations of $2.00 or more are tax deductible.

Jan Gorr Foundation Lunch

Guests of the Jan Gorr Foundation were treated to an inspiring lunch at Burwood Heights Primary School on Tuesday, to showcase the schools Kitchen Garden Program, a Jan Gorr Foundation supported initiative.

The Principal of Burwood Heights Primary, Esther Woods, graciously invited guests into the school so they could hear and see firsthand the benefits of the Kitchen Garden Program started over 12 years ago. Guests were treated to a three course Middle Eastern feast, prepared by students and volunteers, as well as a tour of the garden. Over the course of the event guests were able to meet and interact with both the students and staff and experience the different ways the children were learning through the program and the many benefits the program has resulted in for each individual student.

We have had fantastic feedback and the staff and children at the school were delighted and motivated by the support shown.

We hope everyone who attended walked away inspired and will join us on our journey as we continue to uphold Jan’s teaching philosophies in continuing to support Burwood Heights Primary School Kitchen Garden and other programs, that aim to break down barriers to learning for those students that face learning difficulties.
