Merry Christmas!

Last Monday the Preps were very privileged to present the story of Jesus' birth at our assembly. They were amazing - so respectful and full of joy. We were very proud of them all!

Reuse! Reuse! Reuse!

This term we have been trying to reduce, reuse and recycle. We wanted to reuse an old glass jar to make something new and useful. 

We decided to make a Christmas lantern as a gift to our families. 

We are caring for the environment and reusing a glass jar to make something that is beautiful!

Here is how we did it: 

Take one old glass jar.

Decorate it with tissue paper in Christmas colours.

Tie a ribbon around the rim.

Place a tealight candle inside.

Decorate with small shiny gems and you have ...... one beautiful Christmas lantern!

Our Promises to care for the Environment

This term we have been learning about how we can care for the environment. To finish our unit we have thought about a personal action we can take to help reduce waste going to landfill, to reuse items and to recycle all the materials we can.

Our hope is that our families, friends and school community will support us and work with us to carry out our promises.

This term we have learnt that small actions can make a BIG difference to our environment.

Hint - you can press pause on the slideshow to read each promise.
