Class goes hungry
DURING Rockhampton Grammar School's 7G's new unit “In their Shoes”, Mrs Goldston encouraged all students to 'walk in the shoes' of the less fortunate children in our world.
Together, with great vigour and commitment, the class decided it would like to 'help' some of those children, and felt it important to experience a little of what they endure every day. Hence, the 'Day Without Food' was born.
On Friday August 28, 7G fasted from 8:30am to 2pm, reflecting throughout the day on how fortunate they are in their lives.
7G sought sponsorship for their 'Day Without Food' to aide “The School of St Jude”.
This school in Tanzania tries to overcome poverty through education; educating the poorest of the poor in this African nation.
The school only survives through sponsorship and donations from 'ordinary' people like us! What an incredible learning experience it was!
Their day without food raised $3210.
