Year 7 students from Beaconhills College’s Berwick Campus have been busy sewing pouch liners to donate to Wildlife Victoria to care for orphaned joeys.

Students from three classes have made nearly 300 liners, learning skills such as using overlockers as well as teamwork and leadership. Teacher Mary Gast said the project reflected the College’s commitment to community service and learning about the environment.

“By using old fabric to produce the liners, they are working in an environmentally friendly way,” she said. And of course the pouches keep joeys safe and warm.
