Rotary ShoeBox Project

Dear Parents,
The 2016 student council has decided to support an exciting project founded by Rotary called “The Shoebox Scheme”
Initially this project was to be only for Year 6. Due to overwhelming support from the students and the community this project has been expanded to include the whole school.  Kuluin State School is partnering with Rotary Kunda Park to collect donations to fill shoeboxes that will be sent to Papua New Guinea.
Shoeboxes will be supplied to students. We are asking for your support in the way of donation of various items to fill a shoe box. Shoeboxes will be supplied to students. You can start collecting items at home NOW!!!
Shoeboxes will be sent home in the first week of November.
Items and shoeboxes are due to be returned to school BEFORE November the 30th.
We look forward to supporting the Rotary Shoebox Scheme for many years and thank you for your support.
