In Aroha Rua, we understand the importance of service in our community.  Last term, as part of our Student Volunteer Army learning, Ollie Grosso, William Pepers, Sophie Hooper and Harrison Lowry organised a car wash.  They charged $4.00 for each wash, with the proceeds to be donated to Child Cancer.

Thanks to the generous teachers, friends and parents of St Mary’s, this group managed to raise $100.00.  People were keen to pay more than needed to donate money to help those in need.

This photo was when they met Jo from the Cancer Society, and proudly presented their donation.

“It felt really great giving to the Cancer Society and knowing that the money would help sick kids”, said William Pepers.

We congratulate this group of students for planning such an event and striving to make a difference.  Well done!
