Please help!

James and his family are helping raise awareness of Foster Hope Otago and the lovely work that they do to help those children who are in foster care. A big thank you to all of the families who have brought in essential items to help those children who don't have things that we take for granted.

How can you help?

Foster Hope Otago provides backpacks full of essential items to children going into Foster care in the Otago region, this includes Oamaru to Invercargill and Central Otago.

They are running a toiletries collection drive to help get the final items remaining to make their next lot of backpacks, they are desperately short on the following items: toothpaste, sanitary products, wipes, nappies, hairbrushes and shampoo. There is a collection box in the school office.

They believe that every child should know that someone cares about them and these backpacks help make a difference to children during the first 24-48 hours as they transition into foster care.

2nd try at the ship pirate challenge


Room 5 and 6 put their problem solving skills to the test when making a ship out of a 30cm2 piece of tin foil. We noticed that the sides needed to be big. The winning ship was 18cm long and 9cm wide. It was twice as long as it was wide.
