Walking 27 kilometres sounds like a lot of work, but it’s nothing compared to the amount of effort put in by everyone in our school to raise money for the 7 Bridges Walk. Throughout the year, the Year 8 Charity committee has been raising money for the Cancer Council via a number of initiatives. This included a food stall at Fort Fest, a sausage sizzle and a raffle. Walkers for the 7 Bridges Walk also worked hard on setting up online pages, seeking business sponsorships outside of school, and promoting 7 Bridges Walk on social media. All in the hopes that people would donate to this admirable cause. Of course there was no way this could have been achieved by us alone. We would like to thank our Year Advisers Ms Schubert and Ms Xu for motivating us this whole time. In particular, Sunil our SRC representative, thanks for providing us with the necessary knowledge about the at times daunting art of fundraising. Your ideas were valuable and you have made such a huge impact on who we are as a committee. Thank you!
While we may not be the year that raised the most money, we undoubtedly tried as much as we could to make sure we positively impacted our community and the Cancer Council. As of 7 November 2018 we have raised $8,567.80 on our 7 Bridges Walk page. As well as $570 during our Term 4 sausage sizzle. Thanks parents, teachers, peers and our school community for all your support. In particular the parents and family members who came along on the walk and put so much effort into raising funds to help us reach our target. Also a big thanks to all the year 9 and year 11 students who also joined us on our walk and donated so generously.
