Promotional Jackets get Thumbs Up

picture of a child wearing a promotional jacketSchool Sports Carnival time again and rain called off play….for the third year running!

As a Parent, it’s frustrating – you’ve re-shuffled your day around this event, then through no fault of anyone’s, the weather system decides to serve a bucket and a half of rain. The event is cancelled and you’ve got it all to manage again next week. Continue reading
