Scarlett Crichton is a big believer that one letter can make a huge difference.
The 11-year-old Kooringal Public School student recently penned a note to the prime minister, detailing her concerns over climate change.
Within a couple of days, she was shocked to find a response delivered to her family home.
"I didn't expect he'd write back to me," the year five student said.
"I was so excited [because] I had collected the mail that day and found it. I jumped around and ran in to tell Mum.
"I was scared to open it. I sat on the couch and read it aloud to my mum and my twin sister River."
Prompted by a classroom activity earlier this term, Scarlett's letter documented her concerns for farmers affected by the drought and asked the prime minister to make a simple gesture of support.
"I asked him to send 10 kilolitres of water to the farmers in the drought," said the 11-year-old.
"We were doing a project at school, and we had three pictures all about climate change. So I sent one [image] to the prime minister and said how it was about the world getting hotter and that droughts getting longer."
Although he did not indicate whether he would take up the offer to send water to those who need it, the mere effort in returning correspondence meant a lot to Scarlett.
"He didn't really say if he would [send water], but he did tell me about the Paris Agreement which I didn't know about," Scarlett said.
"Now I know it's a promise from all over the world to fix climate change and that they all have to work it out together."
Reading the letter aloud to her classmates, Scarlett said, has empowered her peers to recognise their own agency.
"Some of them said to me 'I can't believe you got a letter from him, that's cool', some of them said it was fake, but it's not. It has his signature and everything," she said.
"Not many people would have a letter from the prime minister, especially not in Wagga. But I think, if they wanted to, anyone could write one to him."
