The annual Dunalley Duck Run on Saturday was this year a big day out for all the school community, with each student given their very own rubber duck to cheer on in the big race.
In windy conditions for spectators on the Dunalley Bridge, the ducks all but flew down the Denison Canal in a dramatically close finish. Congratulations to Ebony Daly from the kinder class whose Duck was first past the post and well done to the Dunalley Hotel for organising a great event.
The day was a fantastic opportunity to welcome the Launceston Bush Fire Appeal team to the district. This generous bunch have been working tirelessly since early days post fires to help the bushfire affected communities back to their feet. Touched by the school disaster, they have been contributing significantly to one of our wishlists and to the needs of those badly affected by the fires. After the school duck race, the LBA team provided a free sausage sizzle for one and all, after which the many Dunalley Primary children who flocked to the event were presented with a goodie bag thoughtfully put together by the Launceston crew – there were some very happy faces to be seen.
Many thanks to Michael Singline, Tracy Rosier & Leigh Ratcliffe who co-ordinated the effort, their team and all who supported their cause from the North of the State. It feels so good knowing that Tasmania is just one big supportive family.
THANK YOU LAUNCESTON!
