We were lucky

First there were new lunchboxes
Then they hung them in a tree.
Next they added light and made them magical

Later they took them down and filled them

Bought them to Russell School

And we got a lovely lunch and we got to keep the lunchbox !
Thanks ' Feed the Kids too' and to everyone who made it possible. We LOVED the lunch and the lunchbox.

Wednesday 23rd was World School Milk Day - also known as 
Fonterra asked us to take photos of what we did to celebrate the  milk we get each day and upload them to the website. Fonterra want to  send the photos to the Farmers so they can see how much we enjoy the delicious milk they provide.
We made cow masks from the template on the website and got together with Rooms 2 and 3 to drink the milk.
Danae, Oceana and Whaea Angela took some photos and Whaea Angela uploaded them.
Check it out!!!
Ours are the photos with the arrows.
Can you see Richie McCaw in the background!
