NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON’T

Year 12 student Thomas Garnett is known for, and proud of, his luscious locks but that’s all about to change. Thomas is making the big move to shave his head in the last week of term to raise money for the charity No Limits Perth. True to Thomas’ caring and friendly nature, the Alethea Captain selflessly put himself forward to lose his prized mane in order to help others through No Limits, which helps members of the community in crisis – restoring love, faith and hope with one random act of kindness at a time. Thomas would appreciate any help in raising funds for those less fortunate. Find out more here:https://www.gofundme.com/f/tom-shaves-his-head-for-no-limit…

BACKPACK PROJECT

St Stephen’s School is working with Surf Dive ‘n Ski to donate 200 Billabong backpacks to UnitingCare West, which will assist children in our community who are unable to go to school with supplies needed for their education. Each Primary class and Secondary homeroom have a backpack to fill with supplies – take a look below to see what items your family can donate to those in need.

Homeless for a night

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be homeless for a night? Well here is your chance to experience sleeping out rough for a night and assisting a worthy cause at the same time. If sleeping rough is not your thing, you can attend the Manna Fundraising event until 10pm.

Manna is a well-established community charity who provides food and support to those in our community who are disadvantaged and vulnerable.

Get Active, Get Involved

Over the second half of last term, a small group of students from Duncraig and Carramar  have been participating in a pilot program from Western Australian Charity Direct, led by Perth Wildcats captain, Damian Martin.

WA Charity Direct is a unique charitable organisation that focuses solely on assisting the people of Western Australia.  WA Charity Direct was established in 2004 and in that time has made a significant difference to the lives of many within the community.

The following Duncraig students will be distributing an amazing $25 000 to needy individuals and a start-up charity. Please take the time to ask them about their process and involvement.
