YEAR 1&2 JUNIOR HOCKEY PROJECT
The last day of Year 1& 2 hockey will be August 16th. We would like to see the children make a paper hat, colour it in or decorate it over the holidays, ready to wear on the last day (be careful it won’t injure anyone while playing). Coaches and Managers are encouraged to take part in the fun too, by wearing fancy dress & wear their favourite hat! Make it a FUN day for the kids.
COMING UP – volunteers required.
