At least three of our koalas have names, but the kids may have names for many more! Amanda joined our school as a small koala, after spending a period of time at the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. She later caused huge excitement when she showed up at school with a cute baby on her back. Buddy, our school celebrity, made a big entrance at Delungra School by ambling right through the centre of the student’s cricket game in lunch hour. Buddy was suffering from a sore toe, but most distressing, he was on the verge of complete dehydration. He was picked up by our qualified local WIRES volunteers for care, then later released back to the school to the great delight of students and staff alike.
