The Kaleen Primary School Representative Council, and their Co-ordinator Melissa Chiles, today ran a school-wide pyjama day to support seriously sick kids who miss school. The students and staff were able to come to school wearing their PJ’s and dressing gowns for a gold coin donation towards the work of MissingSchool. Melissa Chiles spoke to the kids, at their Friday assembly, about the loneliness of being away from school for extended periods.
The response to the pyjama day was fantastic, with Kaleen Primary donating $645 to MissingSchool. More importantly, it reminded kids of the importance of sticking together and helping each other through tough times.
