What’s common among animals, wildfires and a bake sale at Harmony Public School?

January 20, 2020—What do animals, wildfires and a bake sale have in common? They led to Grade 5 students raising money to make a difference for animals in Australia.

Students in Andrea Bird’s class at Harmony Public School heard about the devastation and wanted to make a difference. They held an in-school bake sale, complete with koala-decorated cookies, cupcakes and brownies and made 130  koala bookmarks.

The entrepreneurial students raised $1,273.25 during their lunch time which will be donated to the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors Worldwide Foundation.
