Vinnies Christmas Appeal

The Christmas appeal is about supporting families in need within our local area. We are asking students to bring in any of the items listed below. The Year 6 students will create hampers out of the donated items and The Acacia Ridge Vinnies conference will collect the hampers to give to families in need around our local area.

Your children can bring in donated items to the Hall in the morning. On the stage, there are baskets with the item name clearly marked. Your child will simply place the item in the correct basket. The Year 6 students will be there to help.​

Here is a list of the items you may send in with your children:

  • Instant coffee or tea bags
  • Milo or drinking chocolate powder
  • Sugar 1 kg
  • Long-life milk
  • Cordial or soft drink
  • Long-life juice
  • Canned fruit
  • Savoury biscuits
