Sharing is caring!

It was a memorable day of fun and games at Brighton Montessori Great World City on Saturday, 3 October 2015, and all for a good cause too.

The “Gruffalo” made an appearance, kids had their fill of fun activities, and parents could even shop for children’s books direct from local publishers.

The charity event, Donate a Book, Change a Life, was open to the public and held in support of Brighton Montessori’s book donation drive. Brighton Montessori is aiming to collect 3,000 books in October to be shipped to children overseas.

Decked out in colourful costumes, the teachers’ animated antics got the amused audience of children and parents enraptured from the start of their performance to the end.
