Students’ Bake Sale Fundraiser
The Year 11 Children, Families and the Community class have being working on a task which involves helping out a student-selected local charity, ‘Halo’.
Halo is a charity that helps out those without a roof over their head or who are struggling financially. Since the local soup kitchen isn’t open on Sundays, Halo fills the gap and allows the homeless to eat on Sundays.
Our Year 11 Children, Families and the Community students have organised for donations to be made to help the homeless which include sanitary items, hygiene items, food and water. Students also raised funds this morning during recess for Halo by baking chocolate cakes, vanilla cupcakes, caramel slice and chocolate chip biscuits to sell at the School bake sale.
Money raised from the Bake Sale today totalled $320, and will be sent to Halo next week.
Home Economics teacher, Ms Eliza Steyl, said that it was great to see the turnout of Secondary students at the Bake Sale.
“The Home Economics students and I love creating opportunities where all students are able to participate in the ‘giving process’, as without their purchases on the day, we wouldn’t have been able to raise as much money as we did.
“I know the whole class is looking forward to sending on the money we collected today,” she said.
Students in the Home Economics class who baked the goodies said that they were happy with the involvement from the school community.
“Thank you to students, staff and parents for all the donations, and for supporting our cause.”
