This week Kelly has come up with the great idea that we hold a trash and treasure market, with all proceeds going to the charity, Mary’s Meals.
Everyone could bring a number of items they no longer want, put a fair price on them and sit them on a table. We will leave a container on each table and people can buy the items, placing the money in the container. So essentially, we are donating unwanted goods. If an item doesn’t sell the owner just takes it home again. What a great way to declutter before Christmas, score yourself a bargain and help people in need!
We will also organise a couple of games for the kids afterwards, if time permits.
This is certainly something we’ve never done before.
Looking forward to seeing you there,

This week we will step back in time to make an ancient style drawstring leather pouch for carrying treasures such as rosaries or coins. Students will use a combination of upholstery leather and vegetable tanned leather for the project. Suitable for all ages young and old. There will also be an opportunity to try out some more advanced leather stamping techniques which older students will enjoy as well. Emma.
Looking forward to seeing you there, God Bless,

This week Rebecca will be making grass/sprout heads with the children. It sounds like a lot of fun especially because these will start growing quickly in this lovely spring weather. She asked me to request that if the mums have any old stockings then could they please bring them along. Also if anyone has a spare glue gun, that would come in handy too.
Hope to see you there.

This week, John and Sam will give us a presentation on composting and worm farming. If you want any of your children to start their own worm farm then please bring an empty ice cream container. The worms and bedding for the worms will be provided, long with some handouts on care of worms and how to compost.
I hope you can make it along – it should be a great day.
See you there,

We’re embracing a multicultural theme for the next activity day. Tell us about a culture that’s captured your imagination. It doesn’t have to be your own.
Mums, for morning tea, please bring a plate representing your child’s chosen country. If the children would like to bring something to share about their chosen country, or dress in its national costume, it would certainly add to the day for everyone. Older children might like to prepare something brief, highlighting something special about that country:
- where is it?
- famous saints?
- famous historical figures?
Let’s eat, dress up and celebrate what’s beautiful in the world’s cultures!
Hope to see you there,
