St Monica’s students have attended sewing sessions since Week 4 of Term 2 on Tuesday afternoons, in order to make lap blankets. Over the eight sewing sessions, students have managed to create at least 25 lap blankets to donate to Wheelchairs for Kids. We will be making the presentation of the funds raised, the blankets and other goodies to Brother Ollie around 4.00pm, with a light afternoon tea provided for all in attendance.

RSVP: Please can you ensure that you notify either your Homeroom Tutor / Classroom teacher (Primary) or Head of House Miss Thornton by Wednesday, 31 July if you will be in attendance (numbers required for catering purposes)
