Warmth of Wool Campaign:

The pictures below shows a magnificent crocheted blanket made and donated by Mrs Pat Manly, grandmother of Austin.

Mitchell has shown his thoughtfulness and his huge persistence by taking up knitting. Helped by his mum Vanessa, he is knitting a beautiful scarf to donate to the Inala Aged Care Centre. Orchard Grove Primary School is part of the Alannah and Madeline Foundation’s Better Buddies Program. Better Buddies helps students entering their first year of primary school to feel safe, valued and connected to the school community. The school pairs new primary school students with an older buddy. This helps to reduce bullying.

A Friendship Seat has been installed near the front entrance of the school. By sitting on the seat, the student will alert teachers and other students that they are lonely and other students will be encouraged to include the student in their lunchtime activities.
