Today we had the first part of our action - Rainbow Day. The whole school wore their favourite colours and brought a gold coin donation.
The Preps are so proud of our school community who were very generous with their donations and we raised $255.60!
Together Prep D and Prep K counted the gold coins - a quick way was to group the dollar coins in groups of 10 - to make $10.00 and the two dollar coins in groups of 5 to make $10.00. Then we counted by tens to $255.60 (Maths in real life!)
Now we move onto the next stage of our action. We need to buy the materials to make some nesting boxes, prepare the materials and put the nesting boxes together.
We hope our family and friends will be able to support us in this next stage!
