Earlier this year our Social Justice Team organised a dress-up day and cake stall, to raise money and awareness, for student education in poorer countries. Today at assembly we were joined by the Victorian President of Vinnies for the Assist a Student program. Paul McCarthy thanked all the families and students for raising enough money to sponsor 9 children in developing countries, to make it possible for them to be attend school. It was wonderful to hear about what a difference our hard work and generosity can make.
Today we are extremely proud of Fintan who had his head shaved to raise money for research into Leukaimia. This deadly illness affects thousands of Australian children and adults every year. Fintan was aiming to raise $250 but with the support of family, friends and the school community he has raised over $1300. He bravely sat in front of the whole school as his Dad shaved off his long hair. He was overwhelmed by the support that he has received.
Well done Fintan!
