THE students of Tulloona Public School will be able to access a new world of learning opportunities thanks to the Variety NSW Bash coming to town. 

More than 100 Variety Bash cars will visit the school on Monday 21st May.

“We’re all looking forward to welcoming the Variety Bash to our school. The Bash has granted us new iPads for our students, which means they can use them during lessons. They will make learning more interesting and interactive for our students and also help teach them vital technology skills,” Principal Felicity Quinlan said.

The donation is part of $50,000 worth of grants the Variety Bash will give to regional NSW schools during the event to help ensure kids, no matter where they live, don’t miss out. 

This year’s event starts on Sunday 20 May at Foreshore Park Newcastle, and is heading to Nundle, Glen Innes, Tulloona, Narrabri, Eumungerie, Forbes, Euabalong West, Griffith, Caragabal, Orange, Mullion Creek, Mudgee before finishing at Foreshore Park on Saturday 26th May with a Family Fun Day.

On day two of the week long adventure the Variety Bash crews will be treated to lunch by the school, where they will be able to meet the kids and see the difference their fundraising makes.

“All our Bashers have a fantastic time on the Bash and the highlights from the trip are always seeing the kids’ faces who we have helped along the way,” Variety NSW Regional Director Jason Bourke said.

 “All of the funds raised will provide grants to help give Aussie kids a fair go. This might be a new wheelchair for a child with a disability, a scholarship to help a child facing financial hardship achieve their sporting dream, or even nappies for a family doing it tough”.
