In term one we raised money for Shine with a cupcake sale, and this time we had a form class competition as well. Congratulations to CTA for being the ‘best dressed in orange’ form class! Lockdown happened just after the feature photo was taken, so the pizza prize was enjoyed in term 2.
Since lockdown we’ve been busy raising money again. This time it was for Kidscan, and we raised over $250! This is a charity that provides shoes, coats, food and health care for children and works closely with schools.
At the end of term 2 we held our annual training day in the school hall. This was facilitated by a dynamic team from the Peace Foundation. An enthusiastic group of students of all ages participated, and they learned a heap of skills around peaceful communication and mediation.
Our next event is Youth Peace Week 2020, where the theme is ‘Celebrating Diversity’, then later in August we will be joining 9 other Auckland schools for our annual Symposium. Lots to look forward to!
