Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

METHODIST Ladies’ Col­lege Ju­nior School stu­dents had the chance to ex­pe­ri­ence a school day with­out elec­tric­ity on Tues­day, May 26.

The Year 6 girls on the Stu­dent Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil or­gan­ised Lights Out for Nepal day af­ter watch­ing the news sto­ries about the dev­as­tation of the Nepal earth­quakes.

The event helped the girls un­der­stand the liv­ing con­di­tions for chil­dren in Nepal.

All lights, com­put­ers and elec­tri­cal ap­pli­ances were turned off for the day and girls were asked to bring in a gold coin do­na­tion that will go to aid agen­cies work­ing in the Nepal area.

Only iPads, lights in the toi­lets and es­sen­tial emer­gency ser­vices such as tele­phones were kept work­ing.
