Banksia Beach State School Year 5B students were lucky recipients of a book called ‘Love is the Answer – My Incredible Journey.’ The book documents the journey of Benji who is a toy dog from the Gold Coast. He goes on many adventures and makes small differences to the lives of many people. Along with his Rotarian carers, Karin, Graeme and Sascha, Benji spreads the message that ordinary people can do extraordinary things.
Classmate Chloe Blinco, who has Transverse Myelitis, features in the book and met Benji on his travels through Bribie Island when she was modelling in a local Fashion Parade. Chloe’s achievements were acknowledged in the book as her belief in herself and that she will always succeed, is a testament to her positive attitude in life.
