Sandy Bay Infant School prep students learn all about the Tassie devil

Chloe Groom was recently the "expert of the week" at Sandy Bay Infant School in Hobart, Tasmania.  She was very lucky to have her dad Matthew's support who talked about the Tasmanian devil.  It was Science Week the following week so he talked about the devil lifecycle and the work being done to help save the Tasmanian devil.  This Page/Chloe Groom & Cath Campbell_Oct14 300px.jpg

Chloe wrote in to tell us in her own words how she raised the $40 along with this gorgeous photo of her donating the money.

"We had two jars - one was full of marbles and one was full of shells - and you could guess how many there were in each jar for a gold coin donation to Save the Devil.  The people who got the right number won the jar. The people who were the closest after that got to choose what they would like - either little Tassie devil ears or a Tassie devil hat."

"My Dad also gave the school a photo of two Tassie devils which the whole school has put up on the wall. He also told us that baby devils are smaller than a 5 cent piece.  We raised $ 40. We hope it helps the Tassie devils.

From Chloe, Prep"

A big thanks to Chloe and her classmates for helping raise money for our Tassie icon.  We sent Chloe a certificate which she presented to her class mates.
