Order forms and templates have been sent home. The template and money need to be returned to the Kindy no later than Friday 14 August 2015.  Orders won’t able to be placed after the due date. The picture plates will be returned to Glennie Kindy by mid to late October.

Each dinner-sized plate costs $25 and is made from melamine. They are hard-wearing and dishwasher-proof.

Designing your template is so easy. Your child can draw pictures, make handprints, use photos. The possibilities are endless. To get the best picture, it is a good idea to use bright colours.

Thank you all for your ongoing support.
