On May 14, the school showed a gesture of solidarity and support for essential Covid-19 workers across the globe by holding a #MakeItBlue day at the school, where students wore a blue outfit or their blue sports uniform.
"We wanted to show our local frontline workers that we are thinking of them, supporting them and appreciate their hard work during this time and always" commented ACC Singleton Principal Tim Shields.
"We answered the Mayor's call to #LightItBlue in Singleton by hosting a #MakeItBlue day at the school that allowed our students to express their gratitude. We encourage every student to act compassionately and graciously, yet think deeply and biblically, and each student was able to do this during #MakeItBlue day" Shields concluded.
The students celebrated and honored all of the frontline heroes in the local community by spending the day hand-making bunting with personal notes of gratitude. The bunting was delivered the same day to local hospitals and the NSW Ambulance Northern Control Centre in Newcastle and was met with great appreciation.
"Our staff were very appreciative of such a kind gesture, especially the handwritten greetings and wishes. It has been a very challenging period and to receive thoughts of appreciation and care from local students is especially meaningful. Your gifts really made our day" said Jane Bourke, Nurse Unit Manager, Singleton Health Service.
The school also created gratitude and care packs for each parent in the local school community who are a frontline worker. The packs consisted of a Country Style magazine, fudge, T2 Tea bags and an ACC Gratitude Card. Principal Tim Shields and the Senior Prefects personally delivered the packs on the day.
