Stockland partnered with Glenorie Bakery to host an interactive cooking experience for local children to bring some fun to the school holiday period after the recent floods impacted the area.

The workshop included 30 children who spent the morning baking treats and decorating Easter shortbread before enjoying lunch in the playground.

Senior Development Manager, Pat Noble, shares: "Stockland is proud to support Glenorie Bakery, a small business in the Hawkesbury and Hills District area.

"We have a close-knit community and we are delighted to be part of an activity that brings a little fun to local kids during such a challenging time, particularly those impacted by the recent floods."

The children were also invited to visit Bobby Bakehouse Junior Bakers Academy where they played with bunnies and watched baby chickens hatch.

Bakery owner, Rob Pirina, says “As a small local business in the Hawkesbury area that has been recently impacted by the floods, we wanted to do whatever we could to support our locals and provide some positivity during such a difficult time."

He continues: “It was great to see lots of smiling faces at this morning’s baking workshop. We will continue to support the community over the coming months and bring people together."

The Glenorie Bakery Junior Bakers Academy is a fully supervised interactive cooking experience for kids aged 3 to 15 years old with activities like cupcake decorating, donut decorating, pizza making and gingerbread house decorating.
