This year we are continuing to support the Victorian Zoos Fighting Extinction Fund by raising much needed funds for the critically endangered Eastern Barred Bandicoot.
Thanks to the generosity of our school community, Warrnambool West Primary School was the highest fund raising school in Victoria in 2016 and 2017!
You can read more about this and the Eastern Barred Bandicoot below.
This year, with your help, we are aiming to raise in excess of $1200
This year we have an extremely unique way of doing so………
BOOKS FOR BANDICOOTS…..is the name of our 2018 campaign. We are combining the importance (and fun) of reading with the significance of helping to save a local endangered species.
Here is how it will work………
For only $10 each
Mr Barnes, our school Principal, will write and illustrate a personalised book.
Mr Barnes will then personally visit your home (at a day a time suitable for you) to read the book to your child/ren. This will occur during Term 3.
Your child/ren then get to keep the school published book.
Every order will receive an ‘I support WWPS Book for Bandicoots campaign’ badge.
For each order placed you will also receive 2 entries to go in the draw to win a family pass to either Melbourne Zoo, Werribee Zoo or Healesville Sanctuary.
100% of the funds raised go to Zoos Victoria.
We will also be continuing our 5 CENT CHALLENGE.
If you would like to support our Books for Bandicoots campaign and order a ‘book’ please see the attached order form for more details.
