Kyogle Red Cross awards local students

MEMBERS of the Kyogle Red Cross, president Val Ferris, secretary Julie Kirkpatrick and Gillian Allerton were at the Woodenbong Central School earlier this month to present prizes to students.

These children had competed in the Anzac Day colouring-in competition and according to the three judges, the standard was very high.

Prior to the presentations, Val Ferris spoke to the students about the great work Mr Simpson and his donkey had done moving injured soldiers to safety during the First World War.

Prizewinners and highly-commended entrants included students Elke Johnston, Lucy Ross, Noah Osborough, Jhett Wadsworth, Chloe Newman, Rose Wilson, Shiloh Williams, Jemima Lee and Bessie Wilson.
