College Raises $115,552 for World Vision!

October 23, 2018 at 1:17 PM

Efforts during the 40 Hour Famine from the Middle College and Senior College combined saw a whopping $115,552 raised for World Vision this year.

Our Year 7 & 8 students deserve a special mention for raising $65,222, with 65 of these students raising over $500 each. A further 47 Senior College students also raised over $500.

We commend all these students for their commitment to a very worthy cause. The top fund-raising House was Cargill, raising a huge $25,089 between them – well done!

World Vision’s CEO, Mr Grant Bayldon received a cheque presented by Senior College top fundraisers, Lulu Denholm ($6305) and Aria Bhej ($6133). Mr Bayldon is a former Saint Kentigern Boys’ School student who remembered his own fundraising efforts whilst at school. This left such a big impression that he ended up leaving his law firm job 15 years ago to work on issues of international poverty and injustice. Once again, the funds raised by the Middle and Senior Colleges will go towards our continued support of Chigodi Village in Malawi.
