Last Friday we raised $227.00 from a mufti day for Caritas. Tonight the Yr 8 children along with Mrs Jones-Hogan and Mrs Winders will be sleeping on cupboard in the hall and tomorrow morning they will be going on a walk before they have breakfast so the children get to experience what it would be like for people who have no beds or convenient food due to poverty or natural destruction.
