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.
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.
If you'd like to help us raise money for the Appeal or would like some
information to give to your teacher give Nicole a call on 03 6324 3527 or email
