Nearly 300 chocolate chip biscuits have been given to four deserving organisations as a thankyou from students at Narrogin Senior High School.

St John Ambulance, Dorcas Clothing, Djookanka House Women’s Refuge, and Keedac in Narrogin were chosen by 14 students in Susan Pattullo’s class, in recognition of their hard work for the community.

The process ran for about three weeks and started with students researching how a range of organisations worked to help the community.

From a list of many, students were asked to pick four groups to send handmade biscuits and thankyou letters.

Ms Pattullo said the Helping Out Task, which had been running for two years, was about recognising the hard work of those who were helping others in the community.

“We decided that chocolate chip cookies were about our ability, and that everybody, if they’ve had a hard day, can have a cup of tea and a biscuit and that would go down quite well,” Ms Pattullo said.

Ms Pattullo said she was proud of how the students had applied themselves themselves to the task.

“They learnt a lot about what volunteering meant,” she said.

“I don’t think they realised how hard people work for them and what was involved, and they got to say who they thought should be recognised for their help.

“It was to pay them back and say ‘thank you’. We couldn’t do much but we could recognise what they do and just say thanks for your time and effort.”
