PARKES CHRISTIAN SCHOOL FUNDRAISING EFFORTS A HUGE BOOST FOR CURRAJONG
PARKES Christian School recently took time out of their busy schedule to pose for a photo and discuss their recent effort at the Moomba Birdman Rally.
“We have $1400 raised for Currajong Disability Services (CDS),” said Design and Technology teacher Jason Wynstra, one of the driving forces behind the PCS effort.
“While we didn’t defend our title this time it was an incredible performance.
“The distance was short of what the students were hoping for, but it is the experience that really mattered,” he said.
“Along the way we raised funds to support a charity of our choice and this year we raised over $1400 for Currajong Disability Services with the support of our school and the Birdman community,” he said.
“It is really important for our students to have a range of experiences and to understand that there is more to life than the little bubble that can be created at school,” Mr Wynstra said.
“Students working on the project have already evaluated our flight and are developing concepts for the Parkes Flyer 3.”
