This weekend I went shopping with one of my colleagues. We hit up the huge Salvation Army store on the Princes Highway and found this wooden toy bike to add to our garden:
We also made a visit to Reverse Garbage in Marrickville, which is Australia's largest creative reuse centre established by a group of teachers (no surprises!). We picked up some very cheap records that we want to add to our entrance 'reading room' with a record player that will be brought in too. We also picked up a bag of these plastic bottles, which look like glass. We figured we could put letters in them written by students to themselves and hang them to the tree outside the classroom.
