150 masks made for school children

Branch Vice President Margaret handed over the masks

The Country Women’s Association’s (CWA) Woy Woy branch has helped prepare local students to return to the classroom next term with a series of handmade colourful masks.

With students expected to head back to school in a staged return from the end of October, CWA Woy Woy gifted over 150 reusable masks to Woy Woy Public School on September 17.

Branch President, Jane Bowtell, said the CWA would donate more masks after the school holidays.

“We are very proud to be able to help Woy Woy Public School keep their students safe,” Bowtell said.

“We are hoping to supply them with enough for two for every child.

“With children expected to head back into the classroom in stages next term we are happy to help staff keep their students safe by donating them a mask to wear.

“We would also like to thank members of the community for the donations of material to make even more masks.”

Currently, masks are only mandatory for high school students and recommended for the primary aged group.
