Our tenth annual Burning of the Vine Cuttings bonfire night was a fantastic family event, despite a little bit of rain that sent us all running for cover! The children had plenty to do this year with two bouncy castles and sumo suits, glow lights galore, a fantastic performance by the Burning Beats Fire Twirling and the amazing fireworks display. The school bands were as entertaining as ever and everyone enjoyed the classic hits played by the Skiffle Billys.

Many thanks to Trish and Denis Horgan and Boyd Wright and his team, for again hosting BOTVC and supporting our school community.
Thanks to Tony Barugh for being an amazing MC.
Thanks to Helen Collis, Mike Goodwin, Phil Foord and the stage crew for help with the school bands and the choir.
Our gratitude to our amazing sponsors: ~ Satterley Property Group ~ Lester Group ~ WA Country Builders ~ Stocker Preston Reality ~ ANZ Margaret River ~West Country Office Machines ~ Augusta Margaret River Shire. Without this generous corporate support the event would not be such a huge success.
To the P&C, Donna Wolter and the school staff … many thanks! Your energy and efforts have made this an amazing event. A special thanks to all the behind the scenes work done by Paul Bradstreet.
Thanks to Margaret River Print for generously donating the tickets free of charge and to Vanessa Lombardo for the awesome posters.
To APEX, Fire and Rescue, MR Ambulance Service and Tom Todhunter at the Agricultural Society, a sincere thanks for your services.
It is impossible to thank everyone individually, so thank you all for your wonderful support.
