JUNIOR PREP SANTA SHOEBOX
The Grade 0 families have been busy putting together their contributions for our annual Santa Shoebox drive. On Friday 5 November, the boys handed over their boxes for delivery. Kenny and Siya ensured that the boxes arrived safely at the Santa Shoebox depot, and they will then be distributed to the worthy recipients. A big thank you to all the Grade 0 families for their kindness and generosity in supporting this special initiative.
THE GRADE 1’s HAVE BEEN VERY BUSY…
The boys collected bags of old clothes which is part of the Clothes For Tress initiative.
They showed a great deal of determination as they filled their Spek Booms with as many leaves as possible. Keeping with the trees theme the boys also finger painted Jacaranda flowers to their trees.
Happy smiles as they practiced their creative writing skills. The theme is Summer.

While learning about shapes and building puzzles the boys enjoyed their yummy treats from the cake sale.
