Sometimes you just know when you need to help someone...

Our craft teacher, Elizabeth Ellean, recently met a young man on a trip to Tanzania, and was struck by his humility and his story. Thomas is the same age as her own son. He wants to be a nurse but he desperately needs to find a sponsor to help him complete his nursing studies. His parents are no longer able to pay for his tuition and the nursing college gave him an ultimatum during the holidays, find a sponsor or terminate your training.

Elizabeth's hopes to raise $4000 by August and she has already raised over a $1000 thanks to family, friends and many generous teachers.

Today, students from Year 8 helped Elizabeth sell cupcakes they had baked to raise money for Thomas, and we are delighted to report they raised over $450!!
Congratulations to you all, and a big thank you to Year 8 from Elizabeth.

If you would like to help Thomas, you can make a direct bank transfer to this account:

BSB 484 799
Account 0543 42917

The money is transferred direct to the nursing school marked for Thomas’s nursing tuition fees. There is no middle player and the monies are going directly to this cause.
