The money we raised on Australia Day was donated to a charity called Wires.Annie and Dave from the charity have been in touch to tell us how our money has made a difference.They have provided photographs of a common brush tail possum mother and joey, the mother was caught in the fire and her feet were badly burnt. A photograph of a swamp wallaby which they have in care at the sanctuary. They will be able to provide us with photographs of this little wallaby for the next few months up until when he is released. His name is Cheezel (they have another one in care called Pretzel). Cheezel was caught in the fires and could not see. He has ulcers on the cornea of both eyes. He is being treated with eye medication and has to go to a vet every week for the first month or so. They have also included photographs of a sulphur crested cockatoo called Clancy who was a rescue cockatoo who lives on the property and other animals we have rescued a mountain brush tail possum and an echidna.
The money raised by our school will help to support these animals back to health.An amazing job!Well done!
The Eco-Warriors were so concerned about the plight of the animals in Australia, due to the bushfires, that they decided to raise money by dressing in red, white and blue. Children made a donation, some of which was from their own pocket money, and they raised over £400. This money will be donated to WIRES. We are hoping to receive updates of how the money has been used.
