$5000 classroom makover could be yours

TWO teachers at St Stephen's Lutheran College spent the school holidays painting their classroom, the students' pigeonholes, cupboards and desks.

Winning a $5000 classroom makeover would enable the school to do that with all their classrooms.

Administration officer Hannah Brown said if her school won, the money would be spent on the nine primary and 11 secondary classrooms.

Teacher - and holiday painter - Taryn Kroesen said her Year 2 students adored the new colours.

"It was so good to see their faces when they saw the classroom," she said.

If you want your child's school to be in the running to win one of 12 $5000 classroom makeovers from Staples, register the school at www.gladstoneobserver.com.au/classroom-makeover-registration before February 27.
