Each centre is given $100 to dress their centre up according to the theme: Embracing Diversity
Give your dress up a title and write 3 sentences about how it applies to the theme.
You must involve all staff in the centre; students and parents involvement would be advantageous
Create a feature (can be a wall or a framed space) and the "Dare to Dream" heart cards MUST be utilised as part of the overall design of this feature
