Chocolate ticket to Canberra

 

THE children at Tarwin Lower Primary School can’t go wrong.

The more chocolate they eat, the closer the Grade 6 children are to enjoying a holiday to the nation’s capital, Canberra.

Every Thursday lunchtime, students have been buying Freddo frogs for 50 cents, with all proceeds going towards fundraising for the Grade 6 camp in term four.

School captains Bella and Cara cannot wait.

“We are going to Questacon, the national science and technology centre,” Bella said.

Cara added, “I’m excited because I’ve never been to Canberra before.”

Thursday is also Seeds Clubs day. Students have established a vegetable garden and either cook or sell produce.

Term two has been fun filled, with a visit to Melbourne to watch opera, a Polynesian performance at Foster, and winter sports at Tarwin Valley Primary School at Meeniyan.

Last Friday, students took part in a talent contest, with singing and comedy among the items on offer.
