Jammies In June

June 25, 2021 at 3:15 PM

With service being at the heart of the Saint Kentigern community, our students are encouraged to serve others where they can and to take part in service initiatives both inside and outside the school gates.

June is the month for jammies, and as the temperature drops, Middlemore Hospital runs the annual initiative ‘Jammies in June’, where they aim to collect 25,000 jammies and blankets for children in the Manukau district who need warm clothes.

After hearing that College teacher, Mrs Charlotte Pienaar was taking part in the initiative, her tutor group, 10CCP2, decided to jump on board and also help to collect PJs and blankets. The girls were fantastic and dispersed posters around the school, encouraging others to get involved. Both the students and Mrs Pienaar were overwhelmed by the response and have received more than 200 items!

The girls have just a couple more days to collect items before they drop them at Middlemore Hospital on Tuesday. If you wish to donate any items, please visit Mrs Pienaar in room 16 or leave them at Student Reception before Tuesday the 29th of June.

We thank those who were kind enough to donate and to the 10CCP2 girls who have led by example and were so eager to join the initiative! Well done girls.
