Rain dance for a chance
Caloundra helping out rural kindy
THE Caloundra Community Kindergarten have mustered all they can to help a rural drought- affected kindy.
It hosted a “rain dance” to get every one in the spirit of willing more rain to the struggling school.
“Our committee decided to hold a fund raising disco for the families to attend and had a barbecue and donated drinks and cakes for sale,” Caloundra Community Kindergarten’s Belinda Lindsay said.
“All monies raised is going to be sent to our newly adopted drought affected kindy in Charleville.”
Belinda said the purpose of the fundraiser was to raise enough to give the families at Charleville Kindy a celebration disco to help raise community morale.
“Our committee worked hard to get donations from several local businesses and raised $1042 ,” said the Caloundra Kindy staff member.
“The president of Charleville Community Kindy has been so grateful to receive the funds and is really excited that they will get to use the money to benefit their kindergarten, but also their community.”
Charleville Kindy plan to hold a dance at its local golf club with a barbecue organised by its local Rotary Club.
“Their reasoning behind this is the golf club is not being used at all at the moment because of the conditions and any money rotary receive, goes back into the community – so it really has a flow-on effect.”
