Day 1: Monday 28 September 2020: Crafting for a Cause
Today's cause: Foster Hope

Today's programme will kick off with an inspirational talk (speaker to be confirmed).

Following the talk, teacher Natasha Bagley will work with the children in the sewing room constructing items for Foster Hope.

From Natasha: It's always nice to know someone cares for you, particularly if you are a child going into foster care and perhaps you have nothing more than the clothes on your back. GetReal students will create hand loom knitted beanies and hand sewn sock monkey toys to donate to Foster Hope, who will give them to children going into foster care placements around Aotearoa. Foster Hope is a local charity that makes up backpacks to be given to children removed from their homes, so that they have a bag to carry their toiletries and some items that show them they are loved. If students would also like to bring a toiletry item or nearly new book to donate to these backpacks, they would be greatly appreciated. See Foster Hope's kit list here:


9 am - 9:30 am Inspirational activist

10 am - 12:30 pm Morning craft session with Natasha
