Our main focus for the remainder of the term is continuing the collection of our Christmas Food Bank Reverse Advent Calendar Appeal. So far, we have uncovered almost three weeks on our calendar. Our families have answered the call, filling almost two buckets with donated items. Everyone in the College is invited to get on board by bringing in items to help us fill as many buckets as possible for the less fortunate at Christmas. Thank you to all who have contributed so far, we really appreciate your generosity.
In association with Rural Aid Australia, we have also commenced writing letters to farmers to encourage and uplift them this Christmas. So many children have written letters, giving hope to our farmers during this tough season. We will be posting our letters this Friday 22 November. We received feedback from Rural Aid, who shared the story of one farmer who has been a recipient of a letter and the impact it had on him personally. It really highlights how a small gesture can have a big effect on the lives of farmers and their families.
