During the month of July, Bribbaree Public School has been raising funds for the Jeans for Genes charity, which supports the Children’s Medical Research Institute.
On Friday the 3rd of July, the students held the Tour de Bribbaree fundraiser, which was a bike ride through the Weddin Mountains. The bike ride was created to fall in line with restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic and because bike safety has been a focus within their school studies.
Students from Years 1 to 6 took part and followed the sandy tracks through the Weddin National Park before stopping for lunch at Ben Hall’s Cave camping ground. They then trekked back through the pine forests to meet the school bus for transportation back to the school.
Jeans for Genes Day is this Friday, the 7th of August and the students will be wearing their denim jeans in support and wrapping up their fundraising efforts. The fundraising goal was set at $500, which they surpassed with the current total sitting at $656.
Donations can still be made to their fundraising campaign at the following link www.myjeansforgenes.org.au/bribbaree-public-school-tourde-bribbaree until the end of school on Friday the 7th of August.
