The students of Narrabri Public School will be able to access a new world of learning opportunities thanks to the Variety NSW Bash coming to town.
More than 100 Variety Bash cars visited the school on Tuesday May 22, bringing with them the chance to give kids in Narrabri a fair go.
“Narrabri Public is an inclusive school, catering for students with a variety of abilities and those from a variety of backgrounds,” Principal Marion Tame said.
“We can currently only provide access to technology for limited periods and urgently require reliable and updated computers.
“The Variety Bash has granted us a new bank of laptops, meaning more of our students can access technology in the classroom, developing their skills in preparation for employment and future career path.”
The donation is part of $50,000 worth of grants the Variety Bash will give to regional NSW schools during the event to help ensure kids, no matter where they live, don’t miss out.
This year’s event left Newcastle’s Foreshore Park on Sunday, May 20, and will pass through Nundle, Glen Innes, Tulloona, Narrabri, Eumungerie, Forbes, Euabalong West, Griffith, Caragabal, Orange, Mullion Creek, and Mudgee before finishing at Foreshore Park on Saturday May 26, with a Family Fun Day.
On day three of the week long adventure the Variety Bash crews were treated to breakfast by the school, where they were able to meet the kids and see the difference their fundraising makes.
“All our Bashers have a fantastic time on the Bash and the highlights from the trip are always seeing the kids’ faces who we have helped along the way,” Variety NSW Regional Director Jason Bourke said.
“All of the funds raised will provide grants to help give Aussie kids a fair go.
“This might be a new wheelchair for a child with a disability, a scholarship to help a child facing financial hardship achieve their sporting dream, or even nappies for a family doing it tough,” he said.
