Did you know . . . ?
The WANTED POSTER dates back to the days of the Old West in the United States when the law was trying to catch bank robbers or cattle rustlers.
Usually a Wanted poster was used to warn the public that the law was after a certain person who has committed a crime, such as this Ned Kelly poster.
Information contained on a wanted poster may include a photograph or drawing of the person and the crime for which the person is wanted. Sometimes a reward is offered for their capture.

Since we have only GREAT students at our school, we decided to create WANTED POSTERS with a difference.
At St Robert’s School, we want to reward students for all the wonderful qualities they possess.
What are YOU wanted for ? – your kindness, your sense of humour, your great basketball skills, your love of pets, your good manners, or for just being happy . . . .
We created Wanted Posters for ourselves listing the qualities we thought we demonstrated.
Here are a few examples.
Tom R Grade 2KT and William 2LO
Jude 3JS and Lucy 3KH
Alex 4MA and Millie 4MM
Making our poster on the computer taught us lots of skills. You can see the skills we learned for each class level at the beginning of each class flip book.
There are more completed examples of our WANTED POSTERS on the Blog page for each class. Just follow the links below.
