Unearth-Ed travel consultant Ann Turner sent an email to Jo from Smithtown Public school in NSW (one of our school excursion clients), to say she was thinking of them because of the fires being particularly bad in their area. Ann received this heartfelt reply which we wanted to share with everyone because it gives a small insight into what they are going through, but also an illustration of the great Australian spirit that comes through during these challenging times.
“Hi Ann, yes, how lucky were our kids to get to Sydney and return as the highway has been closed since Friday.
We have a lot of absences today due to the thick, choking smoke.
The students that are here, are busy baking Protein balls, muesli bars and Zucchini slice for our firefighters.”
Thanks for caring!
