A MILLION DREAMS

Thanks, Stu for your inspiration and for sharing your skills with us!

TEAM M&M MARKET DAY
On Tuesday, Team M&M (Y5/6 class) held a Market Day. It all started when Mrs O brought the class two $5 notes and then asked us to grow the
$5 into as much money as they could. The class pitched their ideas to Miss Hart and Mr Unwin in a 'Dragon's Den' themed way and then the ideas
with the most possibilities were selected - which was a hard choice!
Two groups were chosen (face painting and a balloon pop game), however two other groups had found sponsorship from Frostbland, Jay Jays, Nicks,
Hibiscus Dental Laboratory Ltd and Aspire Homes for Living, so it was decided that they could also run with their ideas (selling ice-cream
and cupcakes, stress balls, a hoop game, brownies and cookies). Finally another group realised they could create a stall without using any
money (loombands and bookmarks).
Team M&M worked really hard over a 10 day period integrating Inquiry learning, Reading, Writing and Mathematics and created an outstanding
Market Day for all of our Brightside Learning Community to enjoy. We are still counting the earnings, however our earnings will be split into
three groups - 'share' - give to a charity, 'spend' - purchase school supplies and reinvest into another marketing venture and 'save' - give
to the PFA.
Mr Unwin and Miss Hart are SUPER proud of all the members of Team M&M!
