Year 6 Roughing It Sleepover
On Thursday night Sept 1st, the Year 6s were involved in a sleep over at school where they were able to experience a small example of how some people are living day to day. They had to create their own shelters out of scraps and random items, create a meal using steamed rice and a few simple ingredients, and organise entertainment that did not involve electronics.
It was a very entertaining evening of discomfort that has hopefully taught us all to appreciate what we do have and to understand how helping others in need can make a huge difference.
We’d particularly like to thank Simon from Climbing Tree and Darren Wegener from FrontLine Constructions for their generous donations of fencing and building supplies that really made the night extra special.
