Raising Funds for Australian Wildlife

Angus McKay School
February 10, 2020

Koalas 6.JPG​Grade 1 and 4 students at Angus McKay School have been busy making and selling miniature clay koalas to help the animals of Australia affected by the devastating bush fires.

The students were inspired by a six-year-old boy from the USA named Owen Colley. When Owen heard of the bush fires, he made clay koalas and sold them to his family and friends for donations. He also hoped others would take his idea and sell these little clay koalas in their own communities. So, the students have jumped on board Owen's initiative! 

Thursday and Friday, Feb. 13 and 14, students will be selling their miniature clay koalas at Angus McKay School from 2–3 p.m. at the front entrance. For a minimum donation of $10, you can take home your own miniature koala. All profits will go directly to the Wildlife Rescue South Coast Inc. in Australia. We look forward to your support!
