Pupils sew for sick kids

JAMES Nash State High School home economics teacher Shirley Hansen has given her two Year 9 home economic students the opportunity to create pillows for sick children in hospitals.

The students were asked to vote on whether they would like to make the pillowcases.

The group of 31 students chose to make the pillowcases which will be distributed to children at the Gympie Hospital.

"I think it is important to help this charity because I believe it is a good cause," student Nikki Smith said.

"I think 31 extra pillows will make 31 extra smiles," she said.
