Lesson in giving back
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.
