On Wednesday, August 14, foundation students from Tatura Primary School celebrated 100 days of school. Children enjoyed dressing up as 100-year-old people and participating in fun activities. We saw some lovely wigs, glasses, walking sticks, woollen jumpers, long skirts, beads, trousers and hats. The day started off with a parade and parents/carers enjoyed watching happy faces as students and teachers showed off their creative costumes. Students then rotated throughout the day to decorate a ‘100 Days Smarter’ headband, create an old-person collage using modelling clay and participate in play-based activities relating to the number 100. Foundation students enjoyed eating delicious cakes to mark the occasion. A special mention and thank you to Tracy Fitzpatrick for making an amazing 100 Days cake and to Simone Dunne for supplying scrumptious theme-based cupcakes. A big thank you to our foundation families for the effort they put in to organising costumes. It was a terrific day enjoyed by all.
