TEDDIES AT ST PAUL'S
Teddies are soft woollen bears knitted by volunteers for the Australian Red Cross.
They are given to lots of different people in times of trouble and trauma.
Trauma Teddies are well travelled, as many have been distributed around
the globe. Individual Trauma Teddies are found all over Australia, supporting victims of flood and fires. They also
travel overseas to victims of earthquake, tsunamis and the many catastrophes which befall our planet over time.
The St Paul's community has been supporting this program for many years now and volunteer knitters have provided over 1200 teddies, after our small beginnings in 2002.

CAN YOU DO?
St Paul's Grammar School has already contributed to this program through
students, parents, grandparents and teachers making some of these delightful
creatures. Everyone is individual, and, I think, made with a lot of love
and care. These will soon be presented to a Red Cross representative to
be given their official label, and then for distribution to those in need
of their comfort.
It is hoped that we will continue this activity in the future and be able
to make regular donations to this cause, so keep those spare balls of
wool aside, and get those needles out! The official Red Cross pattern
is available from the library and the correct filling is provided at no
Contact the Senior School Library for guidance, patterns and filling. (Pattern also available here.)
