Students in Team 2 have spent the past few weeks participating in One Heart Day.
This event has been organised by So They Can, a charity who support a primary school, Abedare Ranges Primary, in Kenya.
One Heart Day is about students coming together, from around the world, to learn about each other and understand the importance of connecting with each other. The day celebrates the African concept of Ubuntu, that when you give you also receive, that we are all one and that we can all help each other.
As part of this day students in Team 2 put on a Bake Sale and a Sausage Sizzle in order to raise money to buy sports equipment for the kids at Aberdare Ranges Primary School. Both were a huge success with the school raising an impressive $515!!
