Congratulations to our Kinders lead by Ms Harling and Madame McAteer, who raised hundreds of dollars (the exact number is still being counted) for our sister school, Dr. FJ MacDonald. The initiative started as a class idea to replace a library book and became a social justice project by the time the group saw how big their idea actually was.  Parents donated lemonade concentrate and helped with the event (thank you), and our kinders did everything else. They created posters advertising the event and posted them all around the school. They made announcements and shared those with the school. They ordered a sunny hot day, and got that too! Today's event was supported by hundreds of thirsty students who were rewarded with ice cold lemonade. For our Kinders, there was so much rich hands on literacy and numeracy learning, but equally important was the learning about their responsibility to others in need.
