On Thursday, 14 February, Brisbane Catholic Education schools 'Shared the Love' by raising funds for Townsville flood victims. At St Catherine's, we chose a 'free dress' day option with a theme of going TROPPO for a gold coin donation.
Thanks to everyone for supporting this endeavour to raise funds to support our schools affected by flood in Townsville. The theme of going TROPPO came about because Townsville is in tropical north Queensland. Staff and students went all out with their outfits! It all helped to make the day a bit of fun. In all we raised over $1000 for flood relief. What a great effort for one small contribution from each child.
Our Executive Director Pam Betts let those attending the Principal Leadership Forum (held in late February) know how tantalizingly close we are to reaching the $85,000 (currently at $83, 841.20) .
Well done everyone!
