In Semester One, Year 11 and Year 12 VCAL students completed a community-based project focused on giving back to the less fortunate.
Every fortnight, we either made healthy sweet treats or reusable bags from donated fabric. During Term 1, we passed the treats and bags on to Mr. Sarris who donates his time to help out the Vinnies Soup Kitchen. Then later, when we were no longer able to donate the treats due to COVID-19, we held a bake sale at school to raise money to buy food vouchers for Vinnies instead. Below is a comment made by Mr. Sarris regarding the project:
“People feel special when someone goes out of their way to provide food for them. They are very thankful for all the donations. It shows those in need that people really do want to help and that we are happy to do so. “
We enjoyed this project as part of our VCAL studies.
