Arts Week In The Junior Block

On Tuesday we will have Wilma Jennings, our local potter,
working with the 3 junior classes.
We are asking for 6 parent volunteers to assist with this activity from 10-1pm.
Please note this will be unsuitable for preschoolers.
 If you have a rolling pin that we could use with the clay on
Tuesday please send this along.

We suggest that our students wear old clothes for Arts Week each day next week.
An oversized 'art shirt' is suggested to come to school on Monday
and stay at school for the week.


Thank you for your support,
Lynley, Louise, Marie
