Year 4 ‘Engineers at Work’

HELPING THE HOMELESS

Year 4 students at Park Ridge are enjoying an engaging and creative Design Technology and S.T.E.M unit this term. Students are even using the design process to create a way to help those less fortunate. Each Year 4 class has created a plan to raise funds for the homeless with classes choosing to run a sausage sizzle, sell icy poles, hold a free dress day and raise funds through a book exchange. Students anticipate that the money they raise will help provide emergency shelter, through Wesley Mission in Ringwood, to those who are most in need. The money raised will be  donated to support a local youth residential program giving young people a safe place to sleep.

Our special events will be held on the following days:

Tuesday 11 December: Book Trade* Students are invited to purchase a donated book for a gold coin donation per book. The trade will run from 12:30pm -3:45pm at the podium. Students will be able to purchase books at lunch or after school.

We hope that you are able to support the Year 4 students to raise money to help support this worthy cause that they have become so passionate about.

*If you would like to donate some children’s/teenage books to be sold at the book trade, please send them to Room 3. This is a great opportunity to refresh your home library!
