Around Our School This Week

 

Play Pod

For those who may not be aware, the Play Pod is blue shipping container located on the lower oval intended to offer a rostered, supervised alternative play option for Years 3-6 students at break times. This includes creative but safe temporary construction options such as reels, tubes, tubs, foam shapes, crates, etc. For a couple of reasons, we’ve closed the Play Pod this week, so that we can give it a tidy up and revamp.

During the course of use last year, the number of items in the Pod dwindled through regular use and so we’d like to restock it with some replacement and additional items. We’d love to hear from any parents and carers
who might have some work connections that would give them free or low cost access to safe creative construction items such as plastic crates and tubs, foam and vinyl shapes, wooden blocks and offcuts, cable reels, tarps and cloth sheets etc etc which have no sharp points or edges. Some examples of existing items are shown below.

If you think you can assist in this regard, please contact me via the school office or email me details and/or photos bmason@bne.catholic.edu.au  so we can discuss suitability and other arrangements.​
