​Animal Spirit Day

- Australian Wildlife Rescue-

The EcoTeam and the Spirit Club at Anderdon Public School have teamed up to sponsor Animal Spirit Day on Thursday, January 16th.

Everyone in the school has been invited to wear clothes with animal prints or pictures, hats and bring favourite stuffed animals to show support for WIRES – Australian Wildlife Rescue Organization, which is working to save animals from devastating wild fires.

Students will be collecting money to send a donation to the relief fund. The World Wildlife Federation estimates that more than a billion animals have died in the wild fires along with dramatic loss of habitat, food and ecosystems.

A number of other schools in the GECDSB have also taken up the cause and will hold similar activities tomorrow and over the upcoming week.
