Students Donate Over $20,000 at 2015 Charity Cheque Presentation

This morning we held our annual Charity Cheque Presentation at Passmores College. Our class of 2015 have been working hard over the last few months organising and hosting events to raise money for their charity of choice. Today the students knew that their hard work paid off as they handed their cheques over and celebrated with their charity representatives.

This year the students raised money for Ronald McDonald House, Hunter Prostate Cancer Alliance, Soul Cafe, The Mai Wel Group and Hunter Life Education. This was done through organising minor and major events as a part of their Event Management course. Major events included cocktail nights, barefoot bowls, a car boot sale and a Masters BBQ.

In total, the students raised a staggering $20,541.11 for these deserving charities. This means that Passmores has now raised over $510,000 since introducing this requirement of the Event Management Course.

Event Management teacher, Tarra Gow did a great job helping the students to organise these events and was very http://www.texasgoldengirl.com/celexa/ proud, “Although it is hard work, you learn so many new skills that are needed in event management and business operations. The students, and myself, found it very rewarding and I congratulate the students for this fantastic result.”

Passmores College Principal, Duncan Passmore, is proud that Passmores can continue to contribute to the local community and he believes that the students learn many life lessons throughout the process, “In today’s world you need to communicate and work together to make a difference. The representatives from these not for profit organisations do incredible work and it is great that we can help them in some way. I hope the students learned some great life lessons during this experience and use these new skills in their future endeavors. The most important thing that can be learned from this experience and from the Charity representatives is to appreciate what you have but embrace every opportunity you have in your future.”
