Students brought a gold coin to school to purchase cut-out figures. These were attached to big ‘houses’ as a symbol of the shelters that were demolished.
The funds raised will go towards providing food and clean water to the victims of the typhoon.
Students, parents and staff gave generously and raised more than $1400. Some children donated their entire moneybox savings.
The school gave the money to Save the Children Fund Australia, an organisation well established in the Philippines.
A representative of the organisation, Anne-Marie Denney, was invited to the school assembly to receive the cheque.
She expressed her gratitude to the students, parents and staff.
