Five Things – May 24/25

So you’d like some suggestions for things to do this weekend? Here’s my pick of the things to do:

Please note Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW), in conjunction with Ku-ring-gai Council and the CSIRO, will undertake a 2.5ha hazard reduction operation in West Lindfield on Saturday 24 May.

SNO @ Abbotsleigh

Saturday Morning: Sydney Non Objective Contemporary Art Project is an artist run initiative based in the inner city suburb of Marrickville in Sydney. It was set up in 2005 to provide an alternative critical position within contemporary Australian art supported by a curated public exhibition and education program.

This is the last day of the exhibition and will be open from 10:00am until 5:00pm at the Grace Cossington Smith Gallery at Abbotsleigh School.

BOB vs Brothers

3:00pm Saturday: Another local rugby derby: Brothers of Roseville Chase will take on Barker Old Boys (BOBs) of Turramurra. The game will be held at Brother’s home ground on Roseville Chase Oval. It’s also Brother’s Rugby Club’s ladies day, so it should promise to be a great afternoon. Colts kick off at 12:45 and the main game starts at 3:00pm.

Drinks at the Blackout Café

Saturday Evening: Here’s a great venue that serves a long list of cocktails with a bit of jazz. Just the way to ease in to a long and pleasant evening! The Blackout Café is on the Highway in Lindfield.

Raising Boys – A talk by Dr Tim Hawks

TimHawkes10:00am Sunday: I think the topic is interesting, particularly as I have two boys myself, but also because Dr Hawks is an interesting man and I believe he is a great public speaker. Dr Timothy Francis Hawkes OAM is an Australian educator and writer, known for his contributions to Australian and International education. He is currently the headmaster of The King’s School, Parramatta (Sydney). Hawkes regularly contributes to debates about developing leadership skills and values in students and how to best educate boys.

Chookas for Lunch

Remember to take a ticket as you walk in to Chargrill Charlies, as it will be very busy on Sunday. But it’s worth the hassle of the ticket just to get a decent schnitzel roll or Pirri Pirri chicken with salad. A good way to round out another busy weekend.
