Grateful thanks goes to the Primary students and their families for the outstanding effort made in raising funds for the ‘Buy a Bale’ campaign. A total amount of $1608.45 was raised through contributions made from the “Farmers” free dress day, the colouring competition and from families and individual children ‘buying a bale’ for our bale wall.
After some discussion with parents, teachers and the SRC earlier in Term One, the ‘Buy a Bale’ initiative was lead by three enthusiastic students in Year 6, Amelia, Crystel, Rachel and the SRC. Their preparations included the production of a video to share at assemblies, the creation of posters and the promotion and distribution of colouring competitions.
The response to the colouring competition was amazing with over 140 entries. The beautiful work produced by the students was displayed in the JUA at the end of the term, creating a fantastic display. The winners of the colouring competition in the Lower Primary were Denzell Davenport in Prep Green, Chloe Turnbull in 1W and Kaitlin Morris in Year 2G. Our winners in the Upper Primary were Lachlan Klein in 3M, Jasmine O’Brien in 4M and Kimberley Bland in 5M.
The names of families and children who made donations towards buying a bale had their names displayed on the bale wall which was so kindly donated and organized by Mrs Nerida Allen and Mrs Jade King.
This large amount of money will be sincerely appreciated. By donating to ‘Buy a Bale’ we have not only helped the farmers but their communities and other people as well.
Thank you to everyone, on behalf of our farmers, for your generous support.
