PRINCIPAL’S REPORT

Dear Parents

Thank you once again for your amazing support for our adopted sister school – Tsefah Primary School in Hazwzien Village, Tigray, Ethiopia.

Two weeks ago the Year 3’s raised an amazing $5000 through their Jump Rope for Heart skipping effort. Half of the money will be sent to the Heart Foundation and the other half to Tigray. Well done, once again, to the Year 3’s and to all their generous sponsors – what a sensational effort from one year level.

Everyone in the school was then given the opportunity to support Tsefah village school on Wednesday AND support it you did! We had hundreds of dollars collected in classrooms as well as parents and teachers parents making private donations.

Together we raised $4090.85

A GRAND TOTAL TO TIGRAY of ….. $ 6590.85

THANK YOU to you all!

Mr Ron Cantlon
Principal
