Students at a Bunbury school put their resources to good use and created 400 wheat bags for teachers across the South West.

As part of a Round Square Association project, Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School primary head boy Conor Barbour and head girl Zaylee Carruthers decided to make the bags for teachers in appreciation of their hard work. Conor said the idea came about as a way they could help teachers during this time.

We thought wheat bags could help ease neck pain or strain and encourage general relaxation through this difficult period of working long hours often sitting at computers.

So far Conor and Zaylee have delivered 300 wheat bags to staff at their school, along with teachers at Dalyellup Primary School, Georgiana Molloy Anglican School and South Bunbury Primary School.

“We have been in discussion with student leaders from Georgiana Molloy Anglican School about expanding the initiative and they are very keen,” Conor said.

Materials for the 400 bags were donated by Conor and Zaylee’s families.

“People in the community have also heard about the initiative and have offered donations of fabric as well,” Conor said.
