Showbags for Norman

 Stall       Bags        Decorating           


We talked about lots of ideas for fundraising to help Norman, our school’s sponsor child. The most popular idea was showbags.  We talked about our ideas for what the showbags could contain, and then sorted ourselves into teams to bring along items to pop in the bags. We decided to put in a notebook, a highlighter, an eraser, a rubber ball, a decorated pencil, a lollipop, 2 balloons and some stickers. We worked really hard to pack the showbags. We set up our stall on Thursday, 19th June and sold our showbags during the Market of Oz which the Year 5/6’s had organised. We were thrilled that about 100 showbags were bought on the day, and we extend our sincere thanks to all those who supported Norman through their purchase.

The Preps have been working on their mouse skills and using interactive pages to mix colours and paint pictures. Combining up to 3 colours the children were able to colour in pictures of their choice. Here is a cross section of some of the images that they created.

Enterprising Attributes


Posted by foundation | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on June 19, 2014

We have been learning about enterprising attributes. We read The Little Red Hen and discussed the enterprising attributes she displayed as she planted and cut the wheat and then made the flour and the bread. We also viewed a TEDtalk from Gabe Eggerling, an inspiring young boy who began his service to others by reading to disadvantaged children and now is involved in fundraising for the building and stocking of three libraries in The Philippines, Guatemala and Peru. The children were able to identify the enterprising atttributes Gabe displayed and were instantly full of ideas for ways that they could help others. Watch Gabe’s video and find out why!

Following this, the children generated some ideas for fundraisers to help our school’s sponsor child, Norman John Magabo. Norman lives in The Philppines and relies on our support for his educational needs. The children then voted for their favourite idea and are now in the process of using their enterprisisng attributes to create showbags to sell at The Market of Oz.
