The money was the group’s prize winnings from the Kids Who Give AWA Awards where the PEAC Year 6 students were named overall supreme champions for their acts of kindness and philanthropy.

They continued this generosity by sending Olivia Trimboli and Ben Hawking to present the cheque to Radio Lollipop DJs at Princess Margaret Hospital, ahead of doing an interview with Governor Malcolm McCusker to be played to sick children at the hospital and their families.

The cheque was presented on December 5, which was Volunteering WA Day.

Thornlie PEAC teacher Steven Watts said up to 35 children from surrounding schools were involved through the PEAC Make a Difference program.

‘It encouraged children to become involved in the community, perform acts of kindness and improve their leadership skills,’ Mr Watts said.
