Students from all year levels, including the pre-school, have been assisted by their teachers and parent volunteers to make soup for the Adelaide Day Centre in Moore St, city.

Assistant principal, Religious Identity and Mission, David Hillard said the students have been learning about the work of the centre and how their “small act of kindness” can mean so much to “people they don’t even know and will probably never meet”.

Each child donates one item to contribute to the soup which they then make together, taking turns to peel and chop the veggies and put them in the pot to stir.

“If people don’t eat they get weak…we made soup to help,” said pre-school student Prayag.

“Some people don’t have heating or warm food so we can bring them soup to help,” added Mac, a Year 5 student.
