A large crowd gathered for a lazy afternoon sampling gourmet treats and a listening to live jazz music on the lawns of Darling Downs Christian School (DDCS) on Sunday for Jazz in Our Garden.

Market stalls selling clothing, jewellery and knick-knacks kept browsers busy and there were plenty of activities for children including old-fashioned tug-of-war, sack races and face painting.

Walks through the Kitchen Garden were also popular, with visitors amazed at the variety of produce grown at the school. 

“The school is lovely – it’s a beautiful setting for the afternoon and the music,” visitor Kerri Robin said. “The garden is very impressive.”

Two live Jazz bands, including popular local musician Signy Arnason, entertained groups of friends and families throughout the afternoon, proving a draw card for those who knew them.

This is the second year Jazz in Our Garden has been held at the school, with Principal Adrian Fitzpatrick hoping it will become a regular event each year.

“It’s definitely grown in its second year,” Mr Fitzpatrick said. “We’d love to see it become something that’s popular on the Toowoomba calendar and specifically for Glenvale.”

Mr Fitzpatrick said the afternoon wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the DDCS P&C.

“We have a wonderful P&C and we are very thankful for everything they’ve done to make today possible.”
