As an option for our Year 9 students to earn Chisholm Care hours this year, they were invited to participate in the Growing Tree Programme which is offered by Mercy Care, to help families at the Wariapendi Child and Parent Centre. This programme asked students to provide a backpack, complete with a lunchbox, drink bottle and all of the necessary stationery items, all ready for a child’s first day of Year 1.
On Wednesday, we were able to hand over to Mercy Care in excess of 50 backpacks to help make the first day of school an extra special one for these families and their children.
