How volunteering helps the Buddina State School students
In the past we have raised funds to purchase additional resources for the school:
“Prep A have used your wonderful donation to purchase some lego, lego figurines and some bead boards and beads. These are all valuable resources for developing fine motor skills in a fun way. Thank you so much for your ongoing support to the children of Buddina, your work is much appreciated.”
“We spent our $250 on The Comprehension Box (Green) which the students starting using today. All were very keen to get reading and have fun while doing it. Thank you, it is great to have such a lovely resource in our room.”
You may even notice this sticker in the front of your child’s Home Reader:
There are many ways you can become involved with the P&C at Buddina
