Holy Family Australia & EPiC Elementary USA collaboration

Over the past two years we have been working with fellow Apple Distinguished School EPiC elementary in Missouri. We have shared learning in areas of Geography, Ecology and the Sustainable Developmental Goals. Recently, EPiC heard of the devastation of the recent bush fires and the impact on the animals, people with their homes and land. They created and made their own pouches and sent them over to in Australia. When the pouches arrived it was up to our students to pass these onto the right agency. Mr DePalma’s and Mrs Norris / Ms Braiotta’s classes decided to take on the challenge and researched the agency called ‘BurnAid,’ who suggested we contact ‘Minton Farm Animal Rescue Cenrtre.’ After making contact, yesterday we were able to pass on the pouches to Bev at the rescue centre. Today we were able to video chat with EPiC for their Open Night. It was truly amazing to connect the students that worked together on this amazing project which made a ‘real’ positive impact on animals impacted by the bushfires.
