Thank you to one of our families that donated a BIG fridge for the staff room. Thanks should also go those families that lent us some small ones as a stop gap.
From time to time we look for some donations if you decluttering or updating. At present we are looking for casserole dishes with lids (no chips) and cutlery especially dessert spoons.
The preschool room is also looking for boxes eg biscuit, teabag, cereal, small boxes for art and craft. (Remember if you take home a lovely creation after a while you can deconstruct it and bring the whole boxes back to be reused)
