Primary school students raise $500 to help bring joy to abused kids this Christmas

Community-minded students at Ardtornish Primary School in South Australia have been working hard to raise funds to help support five charities this Christmas.

The students selected Act for Kids, raising $500 to help us continue providing intensive therapy services for abused and neglect kids.

On 10 December, Act for Kids’ Dr Neil Carrington and Dr Katrina Lines visited the school to meet with the Principal and personally thanked all the students for their wonderful fundraising efforts.

Dr Neil Carrington, CEO of Act for Kids, said it’s great to see the impact that one child can make to their community just by helping to fundraise for abused and neglected kids.

“I am inspired by the teachers’ efforts to grow social consciousness with their students. It’s a great way for children to understand that they can help make a difference to kids who are less fortunate than themselves,” he said.
