Noah's Day

28/11/2018
​Belle had a great idea for some extra fundraising
NOAH-WE CAN’T WAIT TO HAVE YOU BACK!
Noah in year four is currently undergoing cancer treatment in the Queensland Children’s Hospital (previously known as Lady Cilento Hospital).  He has recently been moved to Ronald McDonald house to recover.
 
To support Noah and his family we held:

Noah’s Day – A Free Dress Day

 
On Wednesday 28 November, all students and staff wore yellow – the colour of childhood cancer.  Thanks to Mrs Beutel for the idea and the wonderful yellow ribbons for every student to wear.
 
Students and staff donated a gold coin on the day.  The money raised was matched by the Blackbutt State School P&C Association.  We are very proud to be able to give approximately $800.00 - $400 raised by the school and $400 matched by Blackbutt P&C Association- funds raised will go to Noah’s family to help with his recovery.
 
Thanks to Bunya Nut Cafe
 
On Noah’s day, the staff at Bunya Nut Café raised $300.00 to support Noah.  Evelyn Green owner of the café presented the money on Parade last Monday.  What a wonderful community.  It’s great to see this support for Noah.
 
 
A card signed by the whole school from Troy
Troy thought of a huge card signed by the whole school.
Troy asked his parents to help him make a huge card and it has now been signed by the whole school.  The card will be given to Noah.
 
Belle had a special idea on Noah's Day
(Story written by Mrs Judi Chatwood)
Year 4 student Belle Neilen has thrown her practical support behind fellow student Noah who is on the road to recovery from cancer.
As part of Noah’s Day, Belle handcrafted bright yellow hairclips to raise extra funds for Noah and his family.
The concept for Noah’s Day was proposed by parent Mrs Dee Beutel, with the P&C endorsing the proposal and Mrs Beutel making yellow ribbons for every child in the school.
As part of the Free Dress Day, staff and students were encouraged to wear yellow and contribute a gold coin donation, to show support for Noah and his family.
Principal Mrs Gayle Williamson said yellow was the colour chosen to highlight childhood cancer and everyone was encouraged to take part.
“I was so impressed with how our school community banded together to support Noah and his family,’’ she said.
“Belle went the extra mile by making the yellow hairclips and selling them around the school. Her amazing efforts raised $55 of the $400 collected during the day.”
Mrs Williamson said the P&C has agreed to match the amount raised on the day which meant $800 would be given to Noah’s parents towards the ongoing costs associated with Noah’s recovery.
“Noah’s Day has shown just how our school community can pull together to help others,” she said.
