The donations were delivered to their respective charities by 2017 Middle School Captains, Lily Stoddart and Taylor Thorne on Wednesday, 30 November November.
“The Year 8 cohort has been tested with two themes this year: Respect, Responsibility and Resilience, and also to defy the phrase ‘Like a Girl’. These themes have challenged us: to question stereotyping, to think of others- showing kindness and compassion, to show gratitude, to have a moral responsibility not only to yourself, but to others, but most of all, to create the changes we want to see happen within our community,” they said.
“It has been great privilege and honour to be able to assist both these charities. We hope to continue our support of both of these charities in the future. Finally, none of this would have been able to be achieved without the help and organisation of our wonderful Head of Year Mrs Krzensk and the generosity of our enthusiastic Year 8 cohort and staff.”
