Help for the Homeless

Dear parents and students of Gymea, we need your help!

In the last four weeks of our high school adventure, the Year 12 Prefects have decided to give back to the community that has, so far, provided us with so many wonderful opportunities to look beyond  school with confidence and excitement. In recognition of the privilege inherent to our lifestyles, such as receiving the daily gift of education and having a nest to call our home, we want to raise awareness on those who, unlike many of us, have to fight daily to get a hold of these things. Whilst one’s first thought probably goes to a remote little town in Africa, issues on homelessness are closer to us than we may realise. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 116 000 people were experiencing homelessness in 2016, and unfortunately, these numbers are rising.

In the coming weeks, we have organised a number of activities which will assist our peers to reflect on these societal problems and to also explore the ways in which they can help those less fortunate.

All donations will go wholly to the charities listed below. The websites have also been included if you would like to know more about each organisation.

How can you help?

  1.  Gold Coin Donation: students will be asked to contribute a gold coin on 3 September.
  2.  Clothing Drive: please bring/send in items of clothing in clean and in good condition.
  3.  Food Drive:  please bring/send in non-perishable food items.

All donations of food and clothing may be dropped off at the front office by Friday 14 September.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Violetta Mucerino and the Year 12 Prefects
