Friday May 13

On Tuesday the children participated in the “Love Your Lungs” event which was organised by the PE teachers. It was a successful event and the children worked hard to complete as many laps as they could in the pool, on the bikes and climbing and running around the playground. Well done, LJe for collectively, as a team, completing 88 laps! 

The children had a wonderful time at our Character Morning Tea. It was lovely to see and hear the children acting “in character”. Our Grade 5 buddies were excited to meet the characters and enjoyed all the special treats that the characters had prepared. 

Book and Bake Sale Update: After counting our “IOUs”,  more donations and the change donated by LJe families to practice counting during our money unit, LJe has raised a staggering $869.70 for Kuma Cambodia’s Book Book Tuk Tuk! 

We had another fabulous visit to the Art Room with Mr. Betts. This time we created animals out of plastic bottles! We all enjoyed being creative and using all the materials in the art room. 

Next week, we will be celebrating Service Week across the Infant School. The children will explore what Service means and why it is important to have a commitment to care, as well as how we can all be of Service to others. We will be refocusing on our ongoing Service initiatives as well as thinking collectively about the upcoming Infant Service Trip to Kuma Cambodia. 

We are hoping to take some specific donations to the school which will be given out in the local communities. If you have any of the following items we would love to take them to Kuma where they will be gratefully received. 

-children’s clothes (baby to age 12)

-new underwear

-pre-loved (but in good condition!) shorts, t-shirts, skirts, dresses, light sweatshirts, sandals and swimmers

We will also be making up packs of toiletries/stationery for the children, so, please feel free to send in any of the following:

- soap, facecloths, combs, hairbrushes, toothpaste, hair ties, clips

- new pencils, pens, small rulers, small erasers

All donations can be brought the Grade 1 pod.
