One family has put roots down at Bowral Public School in more ways than one. The Kable family recently donated and planted a tree at the school.
All five of the Kable daughters have attended the school, with the first starting in 2005. Twins Lily and Molly are currently in Year 6 and will care for the tree for the rest of the year.
The family has been in the Highlands for the past 14 years and mum Dinah said it was a way for them to acknowledge the strong connection the family has with the school.
“When I was growing up I never had the privilege of attending one school. We moved around a lot,” she said.
“For me this was a literal thing of putting down roots. This is their [the girls] home.”
Dinah said the school had been “wonderful” for her children and commended principal Wendy Buckley for the work she has done during her time at the school.
“She’s made the place better for the kids and it’s only going to get bigger and better. It’s a great little community to be a part of.”
Ms Buckley thanked the Kable family for its ongoing support of the school.
“It's families like the Kables with their commitment and willingness to be involved with the school which makes the Bowral Public School community so special,” she said.
