Donation to Westpac Helicopter Rescue

Last Friday our head students: Gemma, Luke, Sydney and Blake held a mufti day to raise money for the Westpac Helicopter Rescue. They did this because they wanted to help people in need. Today they took the money into the Westpac Helicopter trust where it was greatly received. Here is a photo of the 4 students presenting the money ($657.50) - we are very proud of them all :) Thanks all of the Oakland's students who donated money at the mufti day too.
