Callum Elliott, a student in Mrs Frosts group found the plane and Callum along with some of his friends bought it back to school and set about trying to find the owner. Last week the plane was finally returned to it's owner, Charlie Lavender and his son who were extremely thankful to have it back. Below is a copy of the letter he sent into the school.
Dear Mrs Lowe,
On behalf of Mark and myself, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks to your wonderful students who not only found our plane, but also handed it in to your office for safe keeping.
As you will be acutely aware, Mark and I are novice flyers, hence the plane being stuck in a very tall gum that thursday evening! We thought it would never come down, and when we returned the next day not only was it no longer in the tree, it was nowhere to be seen on the ground.
We believed it had disappeared for good, particularly when we no had no response from a poster on the Broulee notice board. So imagine our excitement when we heard a message from Mr Tim Clare, via Ziggy and Zed, that it was in your care.
There are always lessons to learn, in future we will write a name and phone number on the plane! Most importantly however, your students should not only be congratulated for taking part in Clean Up Australia Day, but they are praised by us for keeping the airplane safe until it was reclaimed.
So, please say a huge thank you from us.
