She received heaps of gifts too and was very happy to be starting school. We bought her a tin of Fabre castel pencils, a kids encyclopaedia and three window stickers from Australia with kangaroos and emus on them. Marc bought her a dictionary, an Adidas tshirt and a little orange toy thing. She loved it!
