Ocean Road Primary School, in Mandurah Western Australia, rently held their annual fundraiser for Veterans 360, to tie in with their Anzac Day commemoration.
The project involves the whole school. 15 staff members cooked multiple batches of Anzac biscuits. Student leaders then visited each classroom over three days selling the biscuits, raising $580 for V360 Australia (pictured).
“It is extremely important we get students involved to ensure future generations have an understanding of who we are as Australians and the sacrifices made by those who fought in the wars to give us our freedom,” said school staff member Leah Lawler.
V360 Australia is a registered charity, who facilitates outreach and ongoing support for homeless veterans throughout Australia.
Students, staff and community members gathered on the last day of school at Ocean Road Primary School’s annual Anzac ceremony to honour and commemorte the Anzacs. The student leaders hosted the ceremony, attended by a local RSL representative.
