A few weeks ago Haftu Strintzos came to speak to the whole school assembly about his life back in his Ethiopian village, his time at OSPS as well as his amazing achievements since. His talk was inspiring and very moving. It just goes to show what opportunity can do for a child.
Everyone in the school was then given the opportunity to support Haftu’s village school on Friday 30th. We had hundreds of dollars collected in classrooms as well as larger family donations.
The dress up day together with the Year 6 Expo saw us raise $5919.90. Our parent group donated a further $2000 from funds raised throughout the year.
A grand total for Tigray of……$7919.90
What a sensational effort!
