Each year the Anglicare Pantry Appeal is held during winter, an event well supported by Telopea Park students. This year’s appeal was organised by Mr Peter Hobbs and his geography class. Items were collected via each contact group and collated and sorted by Mr Hobbs and his students. The Telopea Park School community donated 2902 food items, which demonstrates the mindfulness of our school community for those less fortunate than ourselves. This year’s contributions will go to support families and individuals within the community who are in need of that extra bit of support. On behalf of Principal Kerrie Blain, Head of French Studies David Binan, event organiser teacher Peter Hobbs, and the staff and students of Telopea Park School, we thank you for contributing to helping our community members in need. Pictured above: Mr Hobbs year 9 geography class, and Anglicare representatives Tatum and Luke.
