Red Shield Appeal 2019
After a cloudy start early on Sunday 26 May, the clouds parted with clear blue skies and balmy conditions.
The Red Shield Appeal door-knocking campaign was a remarkable community network event combining the forces of over 300 boys, 85 parent and staff drivers, working side by side with members of the Salvation Army.
The public responded magnificently to the boy’s charm and exemplary personal appearance in their blazer uniforms. Photos of the groups are posted on Spaces, and can be viewed here.
A total of $18,088 cash was raised on the day (with more still to come from the donation envelopes left in the letterboxes of those not at home).
This is an improvement on last year’s total by approximately $2500 dollars!
Students, staff and parent volunteers enjoyed the day and learnt about the shared joy that comes from working together within the community to assist those less fortunate than ourselves.
You can all be very proud of yourselves and rest assured that we are equally proud of you!
