Our action - Helping the RSPCA!

This term we have been learning about what animals need to grow and change. As a part of this unit we visited the RSPCA Victoria (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and discovered the wonderful work they do. When we went back to school we decided that we needed to help the RSPCA. We considered a few ideas about how we could do this - we discussed the strengths and weaknesses of each and voted on an action. We chose to have an old blanket, towels, sheets and soft toy drive. We have asked the school community to help us collect lots of old blankets, towels, sheets and old soft toys to help the RSPCA care for unwanted, sick and injured animals. We will be collecting donations for the rest of this term. The Preps will be making announcements over the PA to remind our community and we have made posters to put up in classrooms and around the school. Our Grade 6 Buddies and Principal have helped us to think of ways to advertise our action. Ms Egan put a letter in the school newsletter and suggested that we use our blog to tell everyone about our action. The Buddies thought we should make posters and make classroom visits to let everyone know that we need to do to help the RSPCA.
Taking Action That Matters!

Sienna and Matthew bring their donations from home!

  2. That's a great idea prep k, we will hunt around our house for some old blankets. Keep up the great work!

  3. Hi Preps,

    I am so impressed with the action that you have decided on. I'm sure many of the animals at the RSPCA will appreciate all those blankets, sheets and towels.

    Your teacher must be so proud of you all!

  4. Hi Preps,
    You have thought very carefully about your action and it displays a great deal of care for animals that need our help. You are certainly showing responsibility in your action and being great role models to us all. Well done. Continue the fantastic work.
