Dear Simon

Safehaven
 Children's Home had a terrible out-break of bed bugs earlier this year. The beds that the children slept in were harbouring the bed bugs in the wooden frames and all the beds had to be destroyed.
Thanks to their partner school Murray Bridge High School in South Australia, Safehaven now has metal framed beds, new mattresses and new blankets for all the children.
 
"The children are so happy with ther new beds and mattresses, no more scratching" says Steve, the Director.

New bathrooms for St George's Academy
 
The girls boarding at St George's Academy were having to wash with little or no privacy.
Now thanks to partner school St John the Apostle, ACT they have private, individual cubicles and cement floors. No longer the anxiety and embarrasment of 'maybe' the boys can see us.
"This has made such a difference to their mental health and happiness as they have privacy." says Dr Misati - School Director

Electricity for Surgeon Primary
 
We in Australia take turning on the lights for granted, and now for the first time this can happen at Surgeon Primary, thanks to their partner school St Jude's Primary, ACT. Electricity is already making such a difference for students in the dark classrooms, and also opens the way for technology advances in the school such as computers and internet access.
"This is a game changer for us at Surgeon Primary, thank you" says John Nyamoko - School Director
