Cereal Ad

During this term Rooms 3, 6 and 5 have been working together to produce their very own breakfast cereal. R6 are making the product, R3 are packaging it and R5 are marketing it. The ingredients we have used for the cereal are granola, puffed rice, mango, yoghurt covered raisins and sweetened with stevia and honey. If you would like to purchase our cereal we will be selling it in Week 9 at 8.30 outside the school office. The price is $6. We appreciate your support and all profits raised are going towards the school art space.
