40 Hr Famine

We are so proud of the 23 students who have been taking part in the various challenges associated with the 40 Hour Famine.

You can read more about some of them in our new feature highlighting students who are contributing to the wider community.

Recently it was wonderful to see our Senior School students supporting the Year 7 Team Riders and the Year 12 CGS Squad in their drinks and bake sale fundraising efforts. These were both entirely student initiatives and it was wonderful to see the teams working together to plan and implement their ideas to make the stalls happen. We had students working individually and in teams raising more than $3,000 which is an incredible effort, not only by the students but by their families and friends who have supported and sponsored them.

If you would like to donate, please go to 40hourfamine.com.au/t/casey-grammar-school where you can look at the students and select someone to sponsor. You can also find out more about the challenges they have completed. I’m sure you will agree we have rather impressive students!

As we conclude our work to raise funds and awareness of famine globally, please continue to remember the millions of people for whom food security is a dream.
