College pupils help community

Making truffles for businesses, washing cars and painting boxes for Santa floats were just some of the ways St Peter’s College pupils have given back to the community.

As a part of the St Peter’s College Christian service day, pupils completed acts of service around the community.

Community service activities varied for each classroom and were completed at the school and further afield.

St Peter’s College deputy principal Bridget Ryan said one activity included pupils washing cars.

“A year 8 class put out advertisements and asked people if they wanted to have their cars washed and people donated gold coins or food cans.”

For more than a decade pupils have taken part in the Christian service day, which is held throughout the morning and followed by liturgy and a barbecue lunch.

Mrs Ryan said service was a “fundamental” part of the school’s values.

“We put focus on commitment, compassion and community,” she said.

“So this is a way the children can live out who we are as a school and I know they certainly enjoy it.”Nike air jordan SneakersAir Jordan 8 Retro Alternate 305381-104
