I just wanted to let you know that my daughter and her friends had a fantastic party. They were so proud of their candles and loved the Wax Hand. We could really tell that Helmut loves his job making sure all the children enjoy themselves. Thank you once again, all the parents took a flyer as they were really impressed. Heather

You truly made the event very special by giving patients and families a chance to enjoy some Christmas fun that they otherwise would not have been able to attend. We’re extremely grateful to you for giving up your time and resources to support the Foundation. Without your generosity, we would not have been able to run such a great event. We’ve had so much positive feedback from patients, families and staff who all had a fantastic evening. As always you are a joy to work with.

As a school, we are always looking for new and stimulating methods to reward our children for top behaviour throughout the term. In term 2 , we invited Konnie and Helmut to provide a clock making session for the students. The finished products looked more like pieces of art than the functioning clocks that they actually were and the look of delight on every child’s face as they completed their clock, definitely told me that the experience had been very successful. The children and parents were thrilled to have these wonderful clocks, as a permanent reminder of the great term that they had just completed. Thank you Konnie and Helmut. Desley Jones Deputy Principal Blair State School
