With help from parents and grandparents, the Year 2 Kallaroo students knit more than 100 squares to make blankets for various causes at home and internationally.

Some blankets will reach as far as South Africa where they will be delivered by the school pastor to an after school centre in Cape Town.

Others have already made it to an orphanage in Cambodia and Marnja Jarndu Women’s Refuge in Broome.

The last batch will be donated to a refugee family in Perth, made known to the school through the St Vincent de Paul Society.
