“Wear Green” Spirit Day – Friday, February 28th:

Over the next two weeks Ms. Donovan’s grade 6 students, along with the Eco Team, would like to ask for your help to help this worthy cause. These students are looking to raise donations (optional) on or before Friday, February 28th as we invite all students to wear GREEN! All proceeds from this student led initiative will go straight to the Australian Koala Foundation and allow us to adopt a Koala for our school, while helping Koalas in the wild. Not only does this support our Eco-School initiative, but follows our Grade 5 and 6 Focus on Faith themes of Community and the Common Good and Human Rights and Responsibilities.
