Cancer Council 'Australia's Biggest Morning Tea'

On Thursday 13 June, Social Justice leaders Gabrielle and Reid co-ordinated a Bake Sale to raise funds for the Cancer Council as part of the Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event.  We were overwhelmed with the amount of donated goods the Junior School families provided.  A hectic recess trade was assisted by a large group of Year 6 students as well as Mrs O’Callaghan and Mrs Elias.  Stocks were still plentiful at lunch time as we continued our sales.  At the completion of the day we had received $434.95 in donations.  Thank you to all who donated and purchased on the day.
