Nagambie Primary School students are living by their motto.ROB FRENCH March 19, 2014 4:14am
Pictured with the "Alexi noticeboard" are Nagambie Primary School students from 1/2C, Charlotte Palmer, Aleisha Hartman, Brodie Ballantyne and Cody Mitchell - King.
For the past two years the Nagambie Primary School community has been sponsoring Alexi Ndjemba through World Vision’s Child Sponsorship program. Alexi is five years old and lives in Chad, Africa. The school aims to raise at least $500 for Alexi each year, with the main fundraiser being a gold coin donation for ‘‘out of uniform’’ days at the end of each term.
There is a special ‘‘Alexi noticeboard’’ with a photo, map, letters and other information about Alexi. The noticeboard moves to each class and the students in that class write to Alexi and learn more about him and life in Chad.
Nagambie Primary School is very proud of Grade Five student Macey Auld, who has been making colourful bracelets for staff and students and selling them for $3, with all proceeds going to Alexi. Macey makes them to order, and footy and Nagambie colours have been especially popular. So far Macey has already raised more than $130. It was Macey’s idea and she even contributes some of her pocket money to buy the materials.
Macey and all of the students are putting into action the school’s vision which includes the statement: ‘‘Together we seek to improve the lives of others and leave our community and world better than we found it’’.
