Bellarine Project Care students this year have begun the year with a bang! Enthused, excited and coming up with great ideas, they organised our first Project Care day.
Raising money for Beyond Blue, students dressed up their brightest colours. We also had a Marble Guessing competition and a Teacher Minty Run (who would have thought they’d be so eager for a Minty?).
Our next initiative was the ‘2 Chickens for 5 Bucks’ challenge. Raising money for TEAR, the idea is that five dollars will buy two chickens for poverty stricken families who are struggling to make ends meet. As students donated, they stuck their “chickens” on the classroom window for all to see. Throughout the week, the printer was in overdrive printing off chickens, trying to keep up with the generosity shown by every single one of our Homerooms across the different year levels.
Altogether Bellarine Campus bought 1080 chickens…that’s $2700!! It was great to see the way our students so eagerly got behind both causes demonstrating what it means to love one another.
