Fiji Fundraiser

On Friday our Junior School Council organised a special dress up day to raise money and supplies for Fiji. Cyclone Winston caused horrific damage to the island and many families lost their homes and all their belongings.

Mrs Dawson has organised for the goods to be sent to Fiji. We also have the wonderful support of a parent helper who is assisting with shipping the goods.

The school raised over $1 000 and filled Mrs Dawson’s garage with boxes and boxes of supplies such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, nappies, bandages, torches and more.

4A looked fantastic all dressed up in the tropical theme. We hope the money we raised and the supplies we gave will help the people of Fiji.

Thank you to the Junior School Council and Mrs Dawson for organising such an important fundraiser.

Dress up Day for Literacy

Today our whole school is supporting National Literacy and Numeracy Week by dressing up as book characters – even the teachers.

Our dressed up teachers

National Literacy and Numeracy Week supports Reading, Writing and Maths in schools across Australia.

Our Year 1 team dressed up as Dorothy, the Lion, the Tinman and the Scarecrow from “The Wizard of Oz”.

Students today have been inspired by “Winnie the Pooh”, “Harry Potter” and many more favourite stories.

What are some of the impressive costumes you have seen today – name the character and the book they are from. Can you even remember the author’s name?
