A group of Bunbury Catholic College students banded together to raised more than $1000 for those affected by bushfires this year. Student Representative Council members Ruby Milton, Pippa Bouteloup and Perrie Goater were involved in the initiative to raise $1100 for The Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund. Year 10 student Perrie said when the council members heard about the bushfires they wanted to show their support to the local community. “We decided to hold a sport uniform day where students could wear their sports uniform to school for a gold coin donation,” Perrie said. “On the same day we had a sausage sizzle and with everyone’s efforts we raised quite a bit of money. We feel very grateful and proud to have achieved this.” During a parent information evening last month, the P&F also held a sausage sizzle fundraiser. School principal Michael Pepper said the fundraising actions of the Student Representative Council and the P&F were generously supported by the college community. “Our students have demonstrated they are compassionate young adults willing to step forward and support people who lost their homes in the recent bushfires,” Mr Pepper said.
