FareShare Fundraiser – Casual Clothes Day – 29 November
Year 9 Student Leaders Minaree, Hannah, Lila, Aaliyah, Megan and Teshani are leading a team of students to organise and run a fundraising event on Thursday 29 November (during the Early Commencement Program). The event is a Fareshare food drive and casual clothes day on both campuses. Rather than bringing a gold coin donation, students will be asked to bring in one of the following items: tinned tomatoes, penne pasta or plain flour.
FareShare is an Australian not-for-profit organisation that strives for a society where food is not wasted and no one goes hungry. FareShare rescues surplus quality food that would otherwise be wasted, and cooks more than one million meals a year in Australia’s largest charity kitchen. More information about FareShare can be found at: https://www.fareshare.net.au
The Year 9 team have begun working with our newly appointed 2019 Year 8 Captains to lead the event on the Junior Campus. Stay tuned for more information!
