Eco Schools Micro Project Update
We have successfully completed the indoor part of our project and the children are all very pleased with our new 'Kitchen Garden'.
A HUGE thank you to Star Club for taking the original idea and turning it into something amazing! Their time and financial contribution is very much appreciated.
The next step is our outdoor 'sensory garden'. This garden will have plants that have a great fragrance, texture and colour and hopefully there will be some plants that attract butterflies.
To help complete this phase we need the following:
* A Project Manager and/or ideas people * Paint * Tyres * Wooden pallets * Wooden cables (all sizes)
If you can help source any of these materials we would be very, very grateful! Please see Jodie Williams or Jodi Eede at Reception or email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help in any way.

International Day 2014
This special event, which will be held on 27th February 2014, is a time for us all to come together to share a little of our own cultural backgrounds with other members of the community, as well as giving us all an opportunity to learn lots of exciting and interesting things about life around the globe.
Each country represented would set up a table / stall as their display area. These stalls may offer a glimpse of the traditional costumes, customs, cuisines, music and artifacts. There will also be a small stage area that will be available as a platform to perform dancing, singing, or any other cultural activity. The children will receive a Passport, which they can then use to collect passport stamps from the various countries (stalls) they visit.
Please see Jodie in Main Reception to register your interest.

Request from Ms Shar for the Eco Schools Micro Project
Last term I submitted an application to the Eco Schools Micro Project Committee for funding for garden projects for the foundation desert and the outside play area. We were lucky enough to have the application accepted and have been awarded 5000dhs to spend on the project.
I am now looking for volunteers and materials to help get this project moving.
Above is the link to a PPT for the plan of the project. Within the PPT are a couple of pages with requests for volunteers for specific jobs and a materials wish list, as well as my contact email. Please could you contact me if you can help in any way. Any help no matter how small would be very much appreciated.
As a starting point, is there anyone out there who thinks they could get an amazing deal on lovely bright paints suitable for the tyres. We can probably manage some sort of acknowledgement for a company in return for a heavy discount. We will also need more tyres.

Whole School Sponsored Biathlon
On January 28th, 29th & 30th, the WC Team have planned a Sponsored Biathlon Event, involving all Star pupils. FS Children with partake in a run and cycle and all Primary and Secondary students will complete a swim and run.
We would like to encourage pupils to get individual sponsorship; all of which will contribute towards supplying the visited Indian School with fundamental teaching resources. We are fully aware that a week is not a long time for your child to gather sponsorship; but even a small amount of sponsorship will be greatly appreciated.
The Biathlon Timetable has been given to each child. All pupils will need their full swimming and P.E. kit, with the exception of FS1&2. Parents are more than welcome to come and support their child; there will be seating available.
The WC Team, would like to thank you once again for your support.

Sports News Flash!
Our U14s played their first ever fixture away at Kings on Wednesday; nerves were present! However, after 8 minutes it was 2-0 to Star, and the nerves had turned into determination. After 16 minutes we had scored another 3 goals and after 32 minutes, the game ended 12-0...an incredible defeat!
Most of the girls played out of position during the last 2 quarters to try and give Kings a chance of scoring, but we were just too good! All the teams efforts in training paid off.
We are super proud of them. A great start to the season!
