Layers Week


This week at New Gisborne Primary School it is Layers Week.

We have been running Layers Week since 2005 in a bid to encourage children to rug up and save energy.

Tomorrow (Wednesday 1st June) you are asked to rug up in all your layers. There were be a parade of ‘layered’ children in the gym at recess.

Also as part of Layers week you are invited to particpate in two competitions.

The first competition is for you to draw a picture of yourself keeping warm on cold winters days at school. Your picture must be on A4 size paper. See Miss Hunichen or Mrs Hollands if you need some.

The second competition is for you to guess the teachers under all their layers. To do this you need to click on the link below and visit the sustainability blog.

On Thursday morning Ms Preaudet and Mrs Walker will be running a whole school brain gym session down in the gym. We can’t wait to participate!
