Students and staff on the Duncan Street Campus of Ursula Frayne Catholic College, Victoria Park, have excelled over the past 4 years in their donations to the Project Compassion Appeal raising the magnificent sum of $20,000.
Ursula Frayne principal John Armstrong said that “over the past few years, we have seen an increasing awareness from our students for those in need and this has been reflected in their wonderful generosity. The money raised will be used to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate who may not have adequate food, shelter, water or schools”.
This year’s total ($5358) was raised by donations and a sausage sizzle. Over the years there have also been car washes and a chocolate drive. On top of this, students and staff also donated Easter Eggs which were then distributed to women’s refuges, hostels, and to others who don’t always have the luxury of such a treat.
With an average of 660 students over the last few years, this sum is a reflection of the generosity of heart that exists within the school community and we will be looking to raise our target to $6,000 in 2009.
