  • Cora Barclay Centre Friday 16th October Loud Shirt Day

The World Vision 40 Hour Famine  was also discussed. In the last 2 years this has been a dual effort including students participating in the official 40hr project as well as each class giving up something on a nominated day and paying $2 for wearing casual clothes. In Term 1 the SRC raised $297.00 on Friday the last day of term when students payed $2 to wear casual clothes at the Youth Day event.

Thank you to all the classes who contributed suggestions for fundraising activities during class meetings in Week 3. Well over 40 activities were put forward. The SRC Executive was left with the task of choosing 5 options for classes to now vote for their favourite 2.

The options are:

  • Wear Sharks and Eagle Colours for a day
  • Wear Fluro Colours for a day
  • Crazy Hair Day
  • PJ/Onesie Day
  • Wear Favourite Sport Team Colours

Each class will now vote and record a first and second choice which will be collated at the next SRC Meeting.
