This week we have been fundraising for STAR Jam. This is an organisation that helps New Zealanders who are living with a disability. StarJam believes this is something that can be changed. Through music and performance workshops, StarJam reaches many of these young New Zealanders and provides opportunities for them to explore their talents, gain new skills and build confidence to try new things. Over the years, StarJam’s impact on Jammers (our young people) and their families has been phenomenal – inspiring self-belief and a sense of belonging, often for the very first time, resulting in a new zest for life and hope for the future. For many, StarJam has been a life-transforming experience.
During our school day, some of us chose to have our faces painted and later on in the afternoon the whole school participated in 30 minutes of Jump Jam. The teachers even dressed up as Bob, while they danced to Bob the Builder music.
