Students make sushi for charity
Student-made sushi in Cust has raised funds for underprivileged people living in Eastern Europe.
The Cust School Bible-inSchools class made sushi and is donating the proceeds to charity.
The students arrived school an hour early to make the sushi which was sold at lunchtime. Over nine lunch hours, they raised more than $800.
The students then decided how the money should be spent and opted to support Mission Without Borders, an organisation that sends a shipping container of goods to underprivileged people living in Eastern Europe.
Half the funds were used to purchase vegetable seeds, and the other half went to buying fourteen blankets to contribute to the shipping container.
‘‘It’s a very holistic learning experience for the students’’ Bible-in-School teacher Gina Taggart said.
