Stu­dents pull to­gether in sock pro­ject

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick Find -

SHENTON Col­lege stu­dents have col­lected more than 300 pairs of socks to do­nate to Perth’s home­less.

The school took part in the Sox in the City pro­ject with the Ro­tary Club of Fresh­wa­ter Bay at the start of August.

Over two weeks Year 9 stu­dents do­nated warm socks to help get to the Ro­tary Club’s goal of col­lect­ing 4000 pairs.

Year 9 Head of Learn­ing and Com­mu­nity Gary Green said the school com­mu­nity re­ally got be­hind the pro­ject.

“Shenton has de­vel­oped a strong ser­vice-based cul­ture, where stu­dents can make an au­then­tic dif­fer­ence,” he said.

“These align closely with our val­ues of com­pas­sion, in­tegrity and aware­ness of self and oth­ers.

“The stu­dents and par­ents got be­hind the pro­ject and were happy to do­nate pairs of warm socks for those in need.”

The Ro­tary Club of Fresh­wa­ter Bay will col­lect the socks and dis­trib­ute them at a sta­tion in the CBD.­mu­ni­ d458742
