Today at ICOM we are celebrating Pyjama Day with our Primary students wearing their favourite comfy pyjamas to school while making a gold coin donation to an incredibly worthy cause, The Pyjama Foundation who train Pyjama Angels.
Pyjama Angels are volunteers from the community who are screened, trained and supported to create positive relationships with children in care; empowering them with learning, life skills and confidence.
Pyjama Angels implement the Love of Learning Program which is a learning-based mentoring program for children in care. Pyjama Angels visit a foster child in their home for up to an hour a week, assisting them with reading and writing, and providing consistent love and support.
Donation Update: The ICOM Primary students almost tripled their donation goal of $1,000 this year, finishing up with an amazing $2,979.25 in donations!
