Starting Monday the 17th of Feb there will be a Poppy club in the art room from 1:40 – 2:20. What does the Poppy club entail you ask? Students will be knitting poppies and making felt poppies for our school ANZAC memorial. In addition to our school memorial, the Poppies will eventually be sent to the 5,000 Poppies project where they will be exhibited along with many others at Federation Square in 2015.
To start with, the Poppy Club will be open to students in Years 3 – 6 and later in the term it will be open to Prep – Year 2. If anyone has any red, black or green felt and/or wool they would like to donate it would be much appreciated! For those parents who are interested in helping with the club, please pop in after school to arrange the details.
Gill, Kellie and myself are looking forward to working with the children on this meaningful project.
