98five celebrates generosity with North Woodvale Primary School

98five’s Kirste and Morro took the Brekky show to North Woodvale Primary School for Perth’s fortnightly Free Coffee Friday.
Despite what was a drizzly morning in the northern suburbs, The North Woodvale Primary School Choir transported listeners to the heart of New York with their rendition of I’ll be there for you by The Rembrandts — a song made famous by the popular US sitcom Friends.
Students and teachers indulged in free coffee and donuts provided by 98five’s ice cream van man Paul and the show caught with up YouthCARE chaplain Di Sanders and school gardener Brad Geary, who showed off the school’s gardening and friendship programs. 
“We have friendship programs and a social skills’ program. Another chaplain has written two great programs that I used. One (is called) Don’t be an Angry Ant and another is Social Skills Superheroes,” Ms Sanders said.
“We run those (programs) a lot with the girls with friendship issues. The boys we tend to get out in the garden and be a bit more physical with them.”
Teacher Rachael Robertson, who won the Positive Teacher of the Year award — a national accolade given to teachers that champion positive education in schools — joined the Brekky duo to hand over a $300 cheque, funded by loose change donations from the students, to The Smith Family Foundation to help disadvantaged children get the most out of their education.
The Smith Family Foundation general manager Lorna Woodley was on hand to receive the donation.
“That will go a long way to supporting a child for a whole year in education and we really appreciate it
,” Ms Woodley said.
“Thank you very much to you, Rachael, and to the students of North Woodvale Primary School for bringing along their small cash.
