CAN COLLECTION: Pictured with cans collected, from left, Hayden Materne, Margaret O’Brien and Anne Roenfeldt (Lutheran Care), Brittny Connaughton (Nuriootpa High teacher), Nina Sims and Rachael Golder.Term three this year saw an enthusiastic cohort of year eight students from Nuriootpa High School engage in a new initiative during their extracurricular activities (ECA).
Over a two week period late last term students from all year eight home groups (nine classes) had a chance to give back to the community by donating cans to the local Lutheran Community Care in the Barossa.
Every week staff and volunteers and Lutheran Community Care meet with individual and families struggling to meet their financial commitments.
This project has been part of the Compassion Shield that has started this year.
The students accepted the challenge and starting bringing in numerous amounts of cans each day.
A total of 345 cans were donated by just the year eight students in the school which is an amazing effort to all involved. Food donations will go byhelp people who are struggling to put food on the table.
With Christmas around the corner this gesture has been a tremendous help.
