Launch Meeting Notes:

On Wed 8th November we had our launch meeting for this year's parade.  Thank you very much to the enthusiastic and creative parents that attended. We announced this year's theme which is 'paintings' and introduced everyone to our selected piece.  A wonderfully colourful, vibrant and busy jungle painting by Henri Rousseau, called 'Welcome to the Jungle'. 

We had some time to dream about what it could look like and we will use these ideas to develop our concept over the next few months.  See Powerpoint for additional notes.
