On Monday 5th March, we were very excited to be visited by the Camp Quality Puppets, Kylie, Dean and Melissa. The Camp Quality Puppets raised awareness about cancer through a puppet performance. They dispelled common myths and taught the students how to be supportive and understanding of kids impacted by cancer.
We were also visited by Elliot the Dog from the Childhood Cancer Association. Elliot, along with Ben Mead on behalf of the Childhood Cancer Association, accepted a cheque for $11,502.30 which was raised through our Small Change Tins and Pyjama Day in 2017.

For the past year Immanuel students have been collecting old soccer and footy boots for the Barefoot to Boots Foundation. This is a foundation that assists refugees in Kakuma Refugee Camp by providing boys, girls and young adults with boots to use in their organised matches, rather than their bare feet. The matches provide these people with an opportunity to experience being part of a team, gives them something positive to look forward to, and improves their wellbeing. We are proud, as an Immanuel community, to be able to provide a huge amount of boots for Kakuma Refugee Camp. We thank all those who have donated their boots, and a special thank you to one of our Year 4 students for the passion she has, and the initiative she showed, in raising awareness for the Barefoot to Boots Foundation throughout the school.
