TV PER­SON­AL­ITY Osher Guns­berg paid a spe­cial visit to the stu­dents of Will­mot Pub­lic School last month to do­nate much-needed sta­tionery.

Will­mot was the first school in Syd­ney to have a “give” visit from sta­tionery sup­plier Yoobi which do­nated enough school packs for every stu­dent in the school.

Guns­berg, a Yoobi am­bas­sador, spent the morn­ing giv­ing out packs, tak­ing pho­tos and colour­ing-in with Year 6 stu­dents.

“Hav­ing my own child, see­ing what value ed­u­ca­tion brings to her life – to be able to give a lit­tle bit of that to the com­mu­nity is re­ally won­der­ful,” Guns­berg said. “I’m re­ally grate­ful I can be a part of it.

“All we are do­ing is pass­ing on what peo­ple have al­ready given.”

Reliev­ing prin­ci­pal Car­ley Bugeja said the stu­dents were over­whelmed by their gifts.

“I think the sup­plies that Yoobi have gifted us are re­ally cool and funky and it will in­spire cre­ativ­ity. It shows peo­ple care,” she said.

Yoobi co-founder Lance Kal­ish said while 15,000 Aus­tralian chil­dren had al­ready re­ceived packs, he hoped to reach 100,000 by the end of the year.

“I think I have one of the best jobs in the world,” he told The

Stan­dard. “Every child gets a pack of pen­cils, mark­ers, sharp­en­ers, glue stick — ev­ery­thing they need. The Smith Fam­ily helps us choose which schools need it most.”

Guns­berg and the Yoobi team do­nated to 1100 stu­dents, in­clud­ing those at Tregear Pub­lic School, Black­ett Pub­lic School and Kingswood Pub­lic School.
