The Children’s Medical Research Institute and Bankstown Montessori Pre-school

In term 3 Bankstown Montessori Pre-school participated in raising funds for Jeans for genes Day. The children were encouraged to wear jeans to school, bring a soft teddy and gold coin in with them. Our wonderful teachers took the time to briefly explain cells and how it makes every person unique. Our small school was happy to raise $100 for the great cause and received a certificate from Children’s Medical Research Institute.

In term 4 the school was visited by Andrew, Abrielle and Alanna from the Children’s Medical research Institute to explain the important work they do for the community, taking the time to explain what cells, DNA and chromosomes are. The children had so many things to say and questions to ask and by the end of the talk, they were all trying to see if they could see their own chromosomes through their skin without using a microscope.

We thank the Children’s Medical Research Institute for taking the time to visit us and help educate the community of all ages.
