On Tuesday 19 February, the whole college community participated in the annual House Athletics Carnival. It was a great day had by all. One of the highlights was the Social Justice and House canteens feeding the hungry runners! The Social Justice group sold chips, cookies and noodles which were very popular, running out by just after 12pm! The Heads of House diligently organised Energy Sports Packs (a.k.a. ESPs!) The House stalls were operated by the staff and students from each House, each selling their ESP themed by House colour.
A very big thank you to the Heads of House for their ESP initiative!
As advertised, all profits made from the Canteens will be donated to our Term One fundraising cause, Caritas Australia. This year, the theme is ‘Give Lent 100%’. More details about Project Compassion will be published closer to the start of Lent.
Although we are still counting money from the event, it would seem that we are on our way to breaking previous years records, raising in excess of $2000.
Thank you to all students who purchased items from the canteens and to all those who brought the event to fruition. I look forward to updating you on totals from the Swimming and Athletics Carnivals next week.
