Sal has been teaching Kinder three mornings a week. We have eight children attending and they always enjoy playing games, singing, reading books and doing activities together. The children have been learning about seeds and plants, the beach and the ocean. We have made some wonderful crafts together inspired by these themes and have learn t many amazing things about our beautiful world. Staff and families need to be praised for their patience during the holidays when our generator broke down yet again. We all struggled to cope with the hot twelve days without power. We are very thankful for the waterslide built by Harry and Bill which provided much relief for the children during this time. School classes were conducted out on the school verandah and we all jumped for joy when the power returned. Kindergarten School Holidays Bill returns to Gawa Outdoor School Classes Bill Schroder has spent a month here doing some much needed maintenance work on the cars and machinery. Bill comes back to Gawa regularly and we always appreciate his hard work . He is part of our family here at Gawa and the children especially enjoy his presence. We kindly received a $500 donation from the Parish of St Vincent de Paul in Parkville (Melbourne) of new and preloved clothes and manchester. We always appreciate donations for our small op shop which provides bargains for everyone. Clothes, towels and sheets are in demand as there are no shops on the island. Many churches and individuals have helped us to establish this shop, keep it full and help us raise money for our school.
