Friday May 6

Firstly, a huge “Thank You” to all the parents and children in grade 1LJe for your support of our Book and Bake sale to raise money for Kuma Cambodia. Without your support of baked goods and used books it would not have been nearly as successful. As it was, due to the fantastic planning by the children and their enthusiasm for the event, our book and bake sale was tremendously successful raising, on the day, $818.85 to support the Book Book Tuk Tuk. We continued to receive “IOU” money throughout the week so we will be announcing our grand total next week. It was amazing to watch the children at the sale. They were confident, organised and independent. They learned a lot about selling, counting money, making change and providing helpful and polite customer service. I was so proud of all of them. As one of the children said after the event, “I feel so happy because we were so responsible and we have made a big difference to the kids at Kuma!” Congratulations, Grade 1 LJe families. You have all made a difference! 

On Tuesday morning parents are welcome to join us for “Love Your Lungs”. From 11:05–11:30am, 1LJe will be working as a team to see how many laps they can complete of the course. The session will involve running, swimming and cycling around the Infant playground and pool. Please make sure you send their swim suits and a towel. Please apply sunscreen before you come to school that day.

We are looking forward to our Character Morning Tea next Wednesday. The children are invited to come to school dressed as a favourite book character and bring along a plate of snacks (please remember our no nuts policy when preparing snacks) to share with their classmates and their grade five buddy. The children have been encouraged to chose a character from a book as opposed to a movie. Some of the children will be coming as a character that they themselves have written a story about! We are looking forward to meeting all the characters from books and our imaginations.
