Les­son in giv­ing back

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

SHEN­TON Col­lege stu­dents spent last Thurs­day giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity for their an­nual Char­ity Day.

Prin­ci­pal Mike Mor­gan said young peo­ple nat­u­rally loved to help oth­ers and nur­tur­ing that in­nate gen­eros­ity would mean they could grow up with a greater ap­pre­ci­a­tion of what they have.

“Schools need to fos­ter the tra­di­tion of do­nat­ing to char­ity,” he said.

“The Shen­ton Char­ity Day in­volves the stu­dents in choos­ing which causes to sup­port and makes them plan, act and sup­port a wor­thy cause.”

Mr Mor­gan said the stu­dents were en­cour­aged to do more than just raise funds, but also com­mit to ac­tion with vol­un­teer­ing and par­tic­i­pat­ing.

The char­i­ties sup­ported by stu­dents in­cluded Perth Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal, Headspace, Can­teen and The Manna Foun­da­tion.
