Whole school Pyjama Party

3 July 2020 Wagga Wagga Christian College students are acutely aware of the impact of COVID-19 on communities. It has been a challenging Semester One and the Middle School student led Leadership group wanted to do something to celebrate the end of the term and also give back to the community. During lock down many students did their lessons in pyjamas and the student leaders thought it would be fun to wear these to school for the day. They also wanted to use this as an opportunity to support locals who may have lost work or are struggling in our community. After discussion they decided that instead of a gold coin donation they would ask students to bring food pantry items that could be given to Carevan. They were impressed to hear that this organisation provides over 500 meals to locals a week. The whole student population – from Preschool to Year 12 (brave teachers included) – will be jumping out of bed and heading to school in their flannelette PJs and fluffy slippers. The Middle School Leadership group has sleep inspired activities planned throughout the day, from a teddy bear hunt to counting sheep games, with the best PJs winning a prize. For Toby Moore, Year 7 student and nominated student leader of the Pyjama Party day, the event was born out of a desire to support Carevan... “Our group really wanted to support people in our community who are in need and the Pyjama Party seemed like the perfect way to do this. A good welcome back to school after the quarantine period, it has given students something to look forward to as well as benefiting people around us. I’m looking forward to seeing what people come dressed in.”. “Our group really wanted to support people in our community who are in need and the Pyjama Party seemed like the perfect way to do this.
