Year 5 students of Trevallyn Primary School in Launceston TAS decided to support Wombat Mange. Across Australia there are cases of wombats scratching themselves to death because of a skin disease caused by mites. One population however in northern Tasmania, where our students are from, is being affected far worse than most. The number of wombats has dropped by around 94 per cent due to the debilitating mange infection of wombats. The students of Trevallyn were passionate about supporting this cause.
We held a silent auction for our SEATS on our open STEAM night at school and raised money for the two charities that each class decided on. Students had a to write a persuasive argument and share to with the class to decide the voting. It was a great success!!”
