Turramurra Rotary and District 9685 support of Moree East Public School.
Last week, TRC member Pam Pritchard travelled to Moree to attend the Official Opening of the canteen and mural at Moree East Public School, where 86% of the students are Aboriginal. Pam has been in discussions with the Principal of Moree East PS since July 2020, about how Turramurra Rotary and Rotary District 9685 could support this disadvantaged school.
The Principal, Ms Lorinda Potter, has achieved two excellent initiatives for her school, namely a cafeteria where students can sit down to a hot breakfast and lunch every day, and an educational mural painted by a local Aboriginal artist.
Bob Selinger, District Aboriginal Support, inspired clubs to participate and John Hartley, Chatswood Roseville Rotary Club, arranged the donation of 49 iPads from Abbotsleigh School, Wahroonga. Pam was able to take nineteen of these donated iPads with her, with the remaining thirty to be freighted to Moree this week. Chatswood Sunshine Rotary Club will also donate $500 to be used for chargers, covers and Wi-Fi connections.
