Every year the Koori Curriculum in collaboration with Paddington Children's Centre and Petersham TAFE Child Studies coordinate an annual Gift Giving Drive.

This year we were overwhelmed by the incredibly generous support that we had from individual community members, early learning services, the teaching faculty at Petersham TAFE and the wider TAFE Sydney Institute community.

Donated items consisted of pantry products to compile family food hampers as well as toys and clothes for children 0-12 years of age.
We would like to thank all the early learning service teams, families and community members that contributed to our drive. Your support has been incredible and insurmountable.
