Middle School Community Service

Last term the Middle School focussed our attention on the UnitingCare West Winter Appeal. Thank you to all the families who generously donated warm winter clothing and blankets. Our Free Dress Day on Wednesday 28 June raised $489.20 which has also been donated to the Winter Appeal. This term we will focussing on raising awareness for Type 1 Diabetes and all funds raised will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.

We would also like to thank all the families who donated their unwanted footy boots. Middle School has sent 3 boxes of boots and footy socks to the Tjuntjunjara Remote Community School. Tjuntjuntjara Remote Community School is located in the Tjuntjuntjara Community, home of the Spinifex people (Pila Nguru). The Tjuntjuntjara Community is in the Great Victoria Desert close to the border with South Australia, north of the Nullarbor Plain and 680 kilometres north-east of Kalgoorlie. It is considered to be one of the most remote communities in Australia. We are confident the students of Tjuntjuntjara will be thrilled with their new boots and socks!
