Prizes for Games' Stalls at Founders’ Day
The PTA will be holding their traditional games again in the Hall at the Founders’ Day celebrations on Saturday 27 May. We need your support. We would welcome donations of any small prizes for the stalls.In particular, the Tombola stall is needing glass jars filled with treats (think sweeties/marbles/crafty bits/balloons etc.) to be used as prizes. You could get your kids to help decorate these with pretty ribbons or fabric. Please return filled jars, empty jars or fillings for jars to school in the week leading up to Founders Day (22-25 May).
Thank you in advance for the support!
 
Founder's Day Art Project
We are collecting small bits of hard plastic from beaches, parks etc for our Founders’ Day collaborative art project. Examples include bits of broken toys, straws, stikeez etc. One peanut butter jar full will earn two house points. The jar will be sent home for re-filling.
PLEASE REMEMBER THE POINT OF THE EXERCISE IS TO ENCOURAGE LEARNERS TO REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE.
