SUPERHEROES filled classrooms at a Koondoola school this month to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy Australia.

Burbridge School supported the organisation by hosting a Superhero Day, asking students and staff to make a donation to dress up as their favourite superhero, raising more than $230 through a MyCause page.

The school held an assembly on September 6 with Kindy and Pre-Primary students performing ‘I can sing a rainbow’ using key word sign and using their augmentative and alternative communication devices.

Deputy principal Natalie Campbell addressed the assembly, thanking students, staff and families for their support and explaining what muscular dystrophy was.

She said by dressing up and raising money, the school was celebrating each person’s special powers.

Senior student leaders collected donations and chose prize winners for best dressed costume in each class.

Staff were treated to a morning tea to thank them for being superheroes every day, which coincided with Australian Teacher Aide Appreciation Week from September 2 to 6.

Enrolments for 2020 are open – call 9342 1633 or visit www.burbridgeschool.wa.edu.au .
