Letters of hope to Australia


Australia has been devastated by the worst wildfires the country has seen in decades and students here in Biloxi are taking time to honor their first responders.

Over the past two weeks, children at Popp’s Ferry Elementary School have been learning about the fatal fires in their art class.

Today students of all ages wrote letters and drew pictures to send to the first responders in Australia.

They also wrote letters of support for other students in the country who have been affected by the fires. Third grader Dreya Williams said, “Because they are working really hard to save the koala bears and we want them to know that we really hope they can come home and say ‘we saved all of these koala bears, yay!’”

The art teacher at Popp’s Ferry hopes to inspire young people to be more aware of world events.
