Good Shepherd School

One of the world’s leading training and simulation service providers, Cubic Defence, has joined the Bears to School program as a corporate supporter. The Australian division of Cubic Defence has donated seven bears to different schools attended by children or grandchildren of Cubic employees, including two Townsville primary schools.

The Lieutenant Albert Murray bear was donated to the Good Shepherd School in Rasmussen by Cubic’s Shane Campbell and Zac Carabot. The school’s principal, Glenda Scrase, and Defence Transition Aide, Loretta Nawrocki, were on hand to accept the bear. Meanwhile, at the Willows State School, Mikayla Lythgo presented Sister Bernadette O’Meara to the school’s DSTA, Correna Wheeler.

The bears were involved in the commemoration of Armistice and will help educate young students about Australian history and service.
