Millions of acres have burned in the recent Australia fires causing tremendous loss for both people and animals.
This destruction did not go unnoticed by a group of altruistic lower school students. Annabelle G. came up with the initial idea to raise money to help address the fires in Australia. She wanted students to donate change (instead of a bake sale), so that anyone could participate regardless of the amount. Annabelle brought this idea to Eco-Council where it was approved. Girls then presented to the Lower School at an assembly last week. Money is being donated each day into the buckets at our school entrances. Funds will be split between the Australia Red Cross, World Animal Protection, and NSW Rural Fire Service.
