Mission Markets- 12th of August

Image
  Kaya Parents and Families of 5R, Just a quick post in regards to the Mission Markets for 2022 This year the Year Five classes will be running a 'Hair Spray and Finger Nails' Market Stall to help raise money on the day. We are asking that all of the boys bring in a can of hair spray and all girls bring in a bottle of nail polish. If you have any bottles of hair spray or nail polish that you no longer use and would like to send them in, that is fine. If possible, please try to find hairsprays which are easily washed out. I would say that Kmart would be your first port of call for these items, if you need to purchase them. There is also an option for the girls to purchase some finger nail stickers from Kmart as an alternative to nail polish (only $2).  I appreciate your support on these special days. Have a great weekend everyone and feel free to email me any concerns.  Kindest regards,  Miss Rees
