Skipathon fundraiser for Catholic Charities
As part of their social justice program, students from St Thomas School Goodwood participated in a fundraising event on November 7 to raise money for Catholic Charities and the agencies it supports.
The idea for a 'Skipathon' came from the Justice and Ministry Group or ‘Jam’ which is made up of Students from classes that include early, primary and middle years classes.
A liturgy started the event that involved 14 classes and ran for nearly the entire day.
The school’s 360 students took part with 60 to 70 skipping at a time for up to 40 minutes. They were all wearing their me4u button badges and were able to demonstrate some fantastic skipping techniques including, the ‘Double-Dutch’ and ‘Long rope skipping’.
The pupil and teachers who took part raised $2,853.55 for Catholic Charities. What a fantastic result!
(The donations amount includes money raised in 2017).
