Boys' School add a Little Shine for Fiji!

May 25, 2015 at 4:23 PM

During the upcoming July holidays, a combined group of students and parents from the Boys’ and Girls’ Schools, accompanied by Reverend Reuben Hardie, will be undertaking a service trip to Fiji. Whilst there, they will be involved in the completion and opening of a village medical dispensary in Nawaka Village and will visit and assist at two primary schools in the Nadi area. In addition, they are currently gathering, purchasing and arranging shipment of items that the schools desperately need.

In a novel fundraiser last week, the boys put a little shine on their shoes to raise money for the trip! Before school and during morning tea over two days, the boys could line up to have their shoes polished by a willing band of shoe-shiners for donations of two dollars or more.

‘Customers’ were comfortably seated and offered a comic to read to pass the time whilst the ‘workers’ got down to the task of polishing up a shine! At the same time, specially selected music echoed around the campus - tracks included ‘I need a dollar’ by Aloe Blacc, ‘Get Rhythm’ by Johnny Cash and ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ by Elvis!

Over 250 pairs of shoes, including those of Mr Cassie, were attended to, raising $529.40 in the process. Well done boys!

Can you help too?

Through the generosity of one of our parents, a container has been arranged to ship items that have been donated for Fiji. In particular the schools have asked for wooden seats and outdoor tables as well as outdoor equipment for their new kindergarten.

If you are able to help with any of these requests please contact Reverend Reuben Hardie at the Boys’ School.
