The prefects' welfare committee organised several
fundraising initiatives this week to help raise money for the
victims of last Tuesday's Earthquake in Christchurch. In
addition to selling special red and black fundraising badges
for $2, the following events took place:
Wednesday 2 March:
A special lunchtime concert was held in the Albertian Quad. Prefects and other students entertained their peers as they collected donations.
Thursday 3 March:
Students had been busy overnight baking cakes and other yummy treats to fundraise. There were three bake sales at lunchtime.
Friday 4 March:
Students were invited to participate in a special mufti day, wearing the Canterbury colours of red and black in return for a gold coin donation. A variety of activities in the Albertian Quad, including a "dunking machine" created a carnival atmosphere. Headmaster Burden is pictured left doing his bit for fellow Cantabrians.
The total for the money collected from the MAGS activities over the last few days is $15,047.30.
Congratulations to all on this fantastic effort.
