Mother’s Day Stall – Friday 6 May 2022

We have organised a wonderful Mother’s Day Gift Stall and will be selling special gifts for Primary School children to give to you on Mother’s Day. Please send your child, along with $10.00 per gift, to the stalls on Friday 6 May 2022. They will bring the gift home with them that afternoon. The correct money would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to purchase more than one gift perhaps for a grandparent, just send extra money. 

As mentioned last term in Ma-Nishma, we are giving Years 5 and 6 students the additional choice of a charity gift for mum. Details of the initiative can be found here.
