Col­lege raises $5000 for kids to at­tend camp

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

SHEN­TON Col­lege stu­dents and staff raised more than $5000 for char­ity by tak­ing part in the City to Surf last month.

Seventy stu­dents and 10 staff took part in the fun run to raise money for Uni Camp for Kids to send un­der­priv­i­leged kids on a three-week camp.

Shen­ton Col­lege raised enough money to send 20 chil­dren on the camp through their fundrais­ing ef­forts.

Year 9 Head of Learn­ing and Com­mu­nity Gary Green said the stu­dents chose to do­nate to Uni Camp for Kids be­cause they could iden­tify with the age group.

“Our stu­dents come from a priv­i­leged area, so they wanted to help peo­ple of their own age, who were not as priv­i­leged,” he said

“Uni Camp for Kids is a great char­ity that of­fers some­thing fun for chil­dren who are emo­tion­ally, so­cially, and fi­nan­cially un­der­priv­i­leged.”
