Christmas tree challenge brings out children's creativity

AC Care's Communities for Children team praises students and preschoolers from around the Murraylands.

Young people around the Murraylands have shared in the festive spirit by participating in a Christmas tree-decorating challenge organised by community agency AC Care.

Students from schools and kindergartens around the region used their teamwork and creativity to decorate white trees donated by retailer Big W and charity Good 360.

The winners of the challenge were a group of year 4-5 students at Meningie Area School who decorated their tree with messages for residents of the nearby Jallarah Homes, an aged care facility they have been unable to visit throughout the year.

But AC Care Communities for Children program manager Teresa O’Brien said her team had loved seeing the creativity shown by children right around the region.

“We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all of the children, teachers and support staff that have been involved,” she said.
