Berrigan Public School’s Kindergarten and Year 1 class went to Tammie’s Berrigan Bakery on excursion last month.
After the group washed their hands, Tammie showed them the different kinds of flour, which comes from Perth.

Later on Tammie brought the bread rolls to school so the group could eat them at recess.
