Many people have apologised for their small contribution but we accept any amount without judgement. Your generosity is so appreciated! For the price of a coffee in Australia you can buy a packet of coloured pencils, a ruler, a pair of scissors and a reading book or a puzzle. Imagine the difference this makes to a child who does not have these things!
On behalf of the teachers and children I thank those who have contributed. The excitement of the children is simply delightful as was the enthusiastic rush to borrow play equipment during snack time!
