Large plastic bugs, dump trucks and hula hoops were among items presented to St Mary’s Corowa School as part of the Woolworths’ Earn and Learn program.
Principal Glenn McMahon thanked Woolworths for the education resources during a school assembly on Friday where they were on display for students and parents to see.
“I would like to thank the whole school community for collecting stickers as part of the program,” he told the Free Press.
“We must also thank Julianne Dickins, a school parent who worked hard to co-ordinate the stickers collected.”
The school collected 29,820 stickers in total that have now been redeemed for education resources.
Woolworths’ Earn and Learn program helps schools and early learning centres obtain a variety of educational resources, including sporting, mathematics, arts, science and technology equipment.
Woolworths Corowa staff Helen Hendren and Emma Wojtowyez attended the school assembly to present the Earn and Learn rewards and provide fruit for students during their recess.
Helen said it was a privilege to be able to deliver the Earn and Learn educational equipment and resources.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank staff, students, teachers, parents, grandparents and the Corowa community for their efforts in collecting your school a total of 29,820 stickers – what a fantastic effort,” she said at assembly.
“Congratulations St Mary’s we hope you enjoy your new equipment.”
Nationally, Woolworths will be delivering 300,000 pieces of educational equipment to more than 15,000 schools and Early Learning Centres throughout the country, assisting more than three million students.
Information and Communications Technology was the leading resources category redeemed across most states and territories, except NSW and the Australian Capital Territory, which selected mathematics as their favourite type of equipment to receive.
The top five resources categories redeemed in NSW were mathematics, information and communications technology, sport, art and craft and construction.
