This brings us to the story of our Toowoomba Pyjama Angel of the Year, Nola. Nola has been visiting her Pyjama Child, G* since she was six years old. When Nola first started visiting G*, she had just repeated a year of Prep and was struggling academically – despite being the oldest in her class. G*’s carer, Paula, cannot speak highly enough of Nola and her efforts.
“Nola has gone above and beyond in helping G*. I think what has been a standout is her consistency – she has rarely missed a day,” she said.
“If she has been unwell or we have been in lockdown, she has always made the effort to skype.”
As well as this, Nola would send a package of goodies for G* to keep her interested and help her keep improving her literacy.
