Under 8s Stick it to the Principal

​Winning $200 piece of tape being placed over Mr Bennett's mouth.
I am sure I can say that no other school in our district had a more eventful end of term then we did here at Minimbah. Not only did we have another successful Under 8’s Day, but we also got to see Mr Bennett in quite a sticky situation – stuck to a wall in bright, colourful tape all for a great cause! With all pieces of tape being sold for $1 and the final piece being auctioned off for a massive $200 (thanks Year 5s!) we were able to raise over $1200 to spend on more books for our school. We even made it on to the front cover of the local paper. Thank you Mr Bennett for being such a great sportsman and agreeing to the ‘sticky’ challenge.

The overall morning was a huge success, with many engaging and hands on activities for the students. It is an event that our students still talk about this term, which shows how much they enjoyed themselves on the day.

Many thanks to all the parents and students who were involved on the day, but also to the parents who helped us raise more money to purchase more books.
