YOUR STORY: Students welcome Minion to school
YEAR 2 and 3 students at Kalkie State School have found little and big yellow Minions taking over their classroom.
As part of the Australian curriculum, the students have written persuasive letters to their principal, Mrs Maureen Colman, to persuade her to allow the friendly little minions to be enrolled in their class.
In art they have created a large wire and paper mache minion named Kal (short for Kalkie).
Kal watches the students do their work and is their art gallery curator.
The art gallery includes hangings of their persuasive writing letters and minion pictures.
Groundsman Mr Steve Tilly added Minion making to his list of school duties, helping the students cut and join chicken wire to create the body.
In mathematics the students, with teacher-aide Mrs Lea Graves, measured and mixed to make Minion patty cakes.
The students were even treated with packets of Minion munchies kindly left by room cleaning manager Mrs Rose Hyland.
The students eagerly await principal response for inclusion of Minion classmates.
"Making our Minion has taken a lot of steps but it has been fun to do some in the lunch time," said Year 3 student Bryson Day.
"Learning to creatively write letters to our Principal to persuade her to have Minions in our school has been fun," said Year 2 student Lana Grant.
