Shed filled with more than 8,000 food items

On a sunny Autumn morning last week, our College students arrived in school with something extra in hand other than their usual school bags and lunchboxes. It was our Term 2 Foodbank and we were fortunate to have our students and their families contribute non-perishable food items and ration which will subsequently be packed by our team and distributed by social workers to families in need as part of The Shed initiative.

Elliott Quad was abuzz as students emptied their bags and boxes of contribution, while House leaders and representatives arranged the items and prepared them for transport and storage at The Shed. Items collected will go towards our ongoing effort to put together 65 boxes of food and essential items each week valued at around $80 per box, facilitated by a group of staff, students and volunteers.

By the time the bell rang, all tables in Elliott Quad were filled with bags of rice, canned beans and tomatoes, boxes of Weet-Bix, pasta, toothpaste and much more. It is heartening to see our students embracing our mission statement of ‘strive for excellence in all areas of life for the glory of God and the service of others.’

We are pleased to share that the total items collected in this collection drive was 8,168, up by more than 1,000 from our Term 1 collection. Our Saint Kentigern families have always been very generous in supporting our call for support, and we would like to extend our sincere appreciation to students and families for helping us make Term 2 Foodbank a success.

As for the House champion, it was Cargill again who collected the highest points based on items collected. Congratulations for retaining the title for a second term.

Thank you to our talented Year 13 musicians Samuel Voyle and Tommy David who filled the air with amazing tunes during the collection drive.
