Funds raised from School Gala is presented to local schools

Michelle Smith —

Through the fundraising efforts of hosting a community gala last year, our students raised $11,000. After morning tea on Friday 29 March, we presented Bankwood and Fairfield primary schools with a cheque of $5,000 each to help these schools fund chromebooks for their classrooms. Each child also left with a lunchbox thanks to Sistema Plastics. Our senior students spend their lunchtimes reading stories, playing games and teaching music to students at both schools as part of our service programme ‘Over the Fence Ministry’.
