FROM ROSES TO STATIONERY, TV’S OSHER DELIVERS
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.
