Kesser Torah kids help koalas

Early learning centre students at Kesser Torah College have been baking cupcakes and biscuits to raise money for koalas impacted by Australia's catastrophic bushfires.

KESSER Torah College’s early learning centre (ELC) students showed a compassion far beyond their years earlier this month when they decided to raise money for koalas impacted by Australia’s catastrophic bushfires.

Being forced to spend a number of days indoors due to the smoke that has engulfed Sydney over the past few weeks, the children have been made aware of the plight of wildlife who have been affected by the disaster.

Together the Rimon ELC class students baked cupcakes and biscuits to sell to parents and friends, and created drawings and pictures of koalas and other wildlife which they also sold in order to raise money to protect the koalas.

“The bushfires made the koalas’ home not good anymore because they can’t live in their trees,” one student said.

“We are doing this so we can help them get their homes back.”

The money raised will go to the GoFundMe “Help Thirsty Koalas Devastated by Recent Fires” campaign that is being collected in aid of the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital.
