GILMORE College students are making care packages to be used by those in need in the community.

Teacher Rebecca Tennant said Year 11 and 12 Family and the Community students had been learning some families endure circumstances that are beyond their control.

“These unexpected changes can be physically and emotionally challenging,” she said.

“Having an awareness of issues that affect people in our community is the key in helping those that need it the most.

“It helps spread the message that we can all help in some way or another.”

The Year 11 students made Neo-natal dresses for the Tiny Sparks Foundation.

“These little dresses are given to premature babies too small to fit any commercially made clothing,” she said.

The Year 12 students made knitted blankets to help keep people warm during winter.

“Warm blankets that will be cherished by three recipients from Banksia Park Aged Care Facility (Calista), Anglicare (Rockingham) and Zonta Women’s refuge (Starting over program),” Ms Tennant said.

“I am really proud of the student’s selfless attitude towards their project.”
