Jacaranda’s Beach Party Mufti Day!

After our whole school Jacaranda get together on Wednesday we are excited to host and celebrate we celebrate Jacaranda Mufti Day on Wednesday, July 31. Feeling like we, all need to be beside a beach to cool off, our theme this year is ‘Beach Party.’ Throughout the day, there will be a variety of fundraising activities for the students to enjoy and be a part of run by the Students from Jacaranda and the Staff.

HOPE for Cambodian Children is Jacaranda’s Charity. We have been supporting HOPE for 7 years and the difference our funds and fundraising and donations have made to the lives of hundreds of children in their care has truly be lifechanging. HOPE community-based organisation that supports impoverished children to help them and achieve their dream for an access to Education, University and to a better life. Further information about Jacaranda’s charity can be found on their face book and website, https://hopeforcambodianchildren.org/

Last year all monies raised went directly to our charity and will paid for classroom resources and consumable items such as paper, books, teacher resources, posters and also help them set up a vegetable patch and eco gardens in their playground. This year the money will go directly to their Day Care Centre, a new initiative so the Mums can work, usually in the fields knowing their children are safe, can enjoy a meal and play.

Throughout the day there will be the following stalls and activities:

Beach Bake Stall with cupcakes, muffins and other delicious snack items priced at $10. Donations are requested from the students from Jacaranda from P-12 for this stall. They can be dropped off in the morning in the canteen. Please no nuts.
