We received a letter from World Vision congratulating the staff and students at Napier Girls’ High School for raising a grand total of $2,906.00.
These funds are helping to support Child Friendly Spaces in Jordan where children who have fled conflict can start to heal from the trauma of war through arts, music, sports and play. Most importantly, these safe places are helping to give a generation of Syrian refugee children education and hope for the future.
To acknowledge and thank everyone for their hard work, Napier Girls’ High School have received a Bronze certification to display proudly. It is only awarded to schools that have raised more than $2,500 or are in the top 50% of 40 Hour Famine schools across New Zealand (based on the average amount raised per student in the school).
World Vision would like to acknowledge the dedication of our 40 Hour Famine Organiser, Miss Holly Forman, who has done a fabulous job inspiring students to get involved. World Vision recognise the hard work that all our teachers put into this event and are very grateful for our ongoing support.
Congratulations also to Jasmine Zame, Year 13, who was instrumental in leading and supporting World Vision.
