News and information from Helen Moloney, the MAS Counsellor.
The SRC would like to sincerely thank the 14 students and staff member who participated in the 40 Hour Famine Project from home. Collectively $422.00 was raised by this group. We conducted our ‘Go without Day’ on the 26th August, and raised $305.80 by allowing students to wear casual clothes for $2. An additional donation box was also circulated on the day.
During SRC class meetings conducted earlier in the term each class elected to ‘go without’ an item or activity as their way of supporting and making a stand for global hunger.
The SRC have elected to have a Casual Clothes Day this Friday 26th August. The cost of the day is $2 which will go towards Maitland Area School contribution to the 40 Hour Famine Project for 2016.
Each class has elected to ‘Go Without’ an item or activity as their way to make a stand on global hunger. SRC Reps will also be circulating donation boxes for anyone wanting to give extra funds on this day.
This year funds raised will help support projects in countries such as Bangladesh, East Timor, Malawi and Nepal. These funds will help provide programs including improving the health of children under five through nutrition training for parents, increasing access to child health and providing immunisation services.
We would also like to thank students who have nominated to participate in the official 40 Hour Famine project from home. This can be undertaken until September 5.
The official Term 2 SRC Fundraiser was held on Thursday June 26 with 'Hairlarious Day'. Students and teachers were encouraged to sport their best head of hair and gold-coin donations all went towards the Childhood Cancer Association.
There was lots of creativity on show from both young and old with dyeing, glitter, sculpting and some very interesting wigs (we KNOW it was a fake Mr Tuck!)
Congratulations to everyone for making the day so much fun. Thank you to all those (very) patient parents who twisted, tweaked and coloured their children's hair, your time and efforts were much appreciated.
Combined with the sausage sizzle and donut sales, this was an impressive community fundraiser which we can all be proud of.
