This time of year, Christmas, is such a magical time.... a time for wishing, a time for surprises and a time for smiles.
Unfortunately, it is also a time when many families struggle financially, emotionally and mentally.
Wallan Secondary College's Students and Staff recently collected donations of food items to donate to those in need and the response was amazing. So we have decided to try and give a little more.
We have organised a Xmas Wishing Tree!
Our tree which has been kindly donated by North Pole Tree Farm will be located in the Administration Office. The tree will hold tags with children's ages. Everyone is welcome to select a tag from the tree to place on their gift.
The College will then deliver the gifts to a charity to give to those children in need.
WSC feels it is important we continue to teach our students about the importance of giving, of supporting our community, of caring for others and highlighting the benefits of being part of something bigger than themselves.
