I’ve just been accepted to train as a teacher of Primary Ethics. This will be taking place in my childrens school for the kids who don’t attend religious studies. I’m really looking forward to it. It covers various subjects environment, friendships, animal cruelty, interraction, morals etc but is an interractive experience where the kids can openly discuss the topics. It’ll be a challenge but I can’t wait.

I have put in a submission to Volunteer Illawarra to read with kids on a Monday morning during the school terms next year. I am thinking between that, giving blood and the charity fundraisers I am doing next year by the end of 2009 – I’ll be able to mark this off my list!
I also held (within my workplace… but I was a primary organiser) a Girls Night In to raise money for women’s cancers.
We raised a little under $400. It all helps!
I have now committed to giving blood every 3 months…. Is this considered doing charity work? Well it’s a good thing regardless!
As a team we raised in excess of $2000 and walked about 1000km.
More charities to come.
I have just registered myself in the Illawarra 2008 Relay For Life which will be held on 20/09/2008. Relay For Life is a fundraising event for The Cancer Council to help defeat cancer. Funds raised through Relay For Life are spent on cancer research, education, support services and advocacy.
