Congratulations and thank you to our School Community - Proudly supporting the children of  Ermera District, East Timor


Strathaird Primary School recently held a Cultural Day. The day was a wonderful celebration of the different cultural backgrounds of our students.

Students participated in a variety of engaging activities, including weaving and quilt making. We were very excited to have visitors, including Jan Trezise from the Friends of Ermera.

On the day, we were raising money for the Ermera Vile Kindergarten in East Timor. Two years ago we raised money to purchase tables and chairs for the children. Parents of the kinder are currently building a new classroom and the money we raised will pay for educational materials and resources.

We raised a total of $1620. This was an awesome effort by our School Community. We wish to thank all of our students and parents for their wonderful contributions. We hope that you feel very proud knowing you have been able to help children, desperately in need of support, with their education.

Buddy Bear Caring Kids Day

Recently our school held Buddy Bear Caring Kids Day, raising money for the Alannah and Madeline Foundation. Our caring and friendly school philosophy and our buddy program are closely linked to the Better Buddies Program and the mascot, Buddy Bear. The focus for the day was showing acts of kindness towards others. Our students

were very excited when a

special visitor , Buddy Bear,

came to all the classrooms.

A big thank you to the school

community for supporting this

wonderful charity.

Also a big

thank you to Junior School

Council and Mr Kennelly for

organising the day.

Quilts for the Ermera Vile Kindergarten

Our Year Four students completed squares which were stitched together into two quilts by Mrs Gates. The drawings illustrate friendship between children in Australia and East Timor. The Friends of Ermera will send the quilts to the Ermera Vile Kindergarten. Thanks to the Year 4 students, teachers and Mrs Gates.

 

Junior School Council Initiatives

Hats for the Homeless

The Junior School Council would like to thank the students, parents and staff of Strathaird Primary School for supporting Hats for the Homeless Winter Appeal. We raised $836.30 for the Street Swags organisation. Our fundraising will help to supply 13 sleeping swags to homeless people. We feel pleased we have been able to help people in need to keep warm this winter.

Well done and thanks for your support.
