school supplies

I read on this forum that someone had taken books , pencils etc for the children in the local village.

We would like to do this. Can someone let me know where the school is and what would you suggest we take ?

Hi jem, we are going to a different island but we were told that Crayola pencil crayons are prized as well as those little plastic sharpeners,rubber erasers,stuff like that.We also picked up a bunch of little toys and thought we'd give them to the teacher to hand out as we can't buy for all of them,blow bubbles,yo-yos and other gadgets.

Another item the kids love is glow sticks. They think these are awesome!

We visited Malolo Island Primary School two years ago and were advised that exercise books for writing in and pencils were in very short supply.
