Friendship is one of our school values and so on Tuesday 28th May we held our school’s annual Friendship Day. The Friendship Day is held every year in memory of two students, Ruby and Salvi. The theme of the day was ‘Yellow’ and all students wore yellow and created and decorated yellow sunglasses as our Friendship Day activity. Everyone’s glasses looked fantastic – we know because we saw everyone in the Yellow Parade! There was a prize for the people who wore the most yellow. We raised heaps of money for The Challenge Program. The money is to help kids who are sick in hospital.
On Friendship Day we had also had a special lunch. Thank you to Family and Friends group, Maggie and the Junior School Council for organising and helping on the day.
