Generating Change for Teen Challenge


Our High School community hosted a vibrant lunchtime fundraiser on Thursday, 18 May, to support the remarkable work of Teen Challenge. Teen Challenge are a local Christian charity that has transformed the lives of countless young people grappling with addiction, abuse and other life-controlling problems. The event generated vital funds for the organisation while providing an avenue for students to show compassion and love towards others. The highlight of the fundraiser was a free t-shirt day, where students wore jerseys representing their favourite sports teams. The display of team spirit served as a visual reminder of the power of collaboration for a common cause. Various activities engaged our community in the fundraising fun, including a lively Table Tennis competition. King's philanthropic LIFE team took charge of a delicious BBQ fundraiser, serving sizzling sausages, fairy floss and other treats to hundreds of hungry staff and students. Music filled the air as our talented 'King's Rock Band' created an energetic atmosphere with their rock-inspired tunes, led by Mr Reddrop.

This event successfully raised $4,099 for Teen Challenge and reinforced our unwavering commitment to helping those in difficult circumstances. So far this year, our school community has raised close to $30,000 for various charities. By dedicating time and energy throughout the year to these valuable activities, we outwork our College's Foundational Values and embody the characteristics of what it means to be a 'King's Kid' by making a positive impact on the world around us.
