The Gemsters

Welcome Gemsters!!


Our job as The Gemsters is to use the gems and recognise them in others, we need to be role models for the other children. We need to look after people. We need to remind people, both children and adults, about the Gem Project. We want to link the gem powers to house points. Written by the council.
