Stu­dents take on drought re­lief fundrais­ing

Seymour Telegraph - - KIDS SPEAK -

Avenel Pri­mary School stu­dents have been rais­ing money for the se­verely drought-af­fected town of Bu­galdie in NSW.

Of a sim­i­lar size to Avenel, the farm­ing com­mu­nity of Bu­galdie has been se­verely im­pacted by the pro­longed drought.

Stu­dents came to know of the fate of Bu­galdie through the lo­cally ini­ti­ated char­ity, ‘It Just Takes One’, which has been formed by a group of Avenel res­i­dents.

Through the se­ries of fundrais­ing events, the stu­dents of Avenel Pri­mary School set out to raise $1000 in sup­port of this great cause.

By the time they had con­cluded their Walk-a-thon, Footy for Farm­ers Day and Sil­ver Coin Chal­lenge, the school had raised $6121.45 — a truly out­stand­ing ef­fort by ev­ery­one in­volved.

One of the school’s core val­ues is ‘‘giv­ing some­thing back’’ and these fundrais­ing ef­forts were a great ex­pres­sion of this value in ac­tion.
