King's Students Support Future Generations
King's Life Program is the Community Service arm of High School and focuses on supporting and showing the love of Jesus to people less fortunate. An exciting aspect of the Program is that it's lead by students, providing them with a valuable opportunity to be part of something bigger than themselves.
This term, the Life team ran an event in Week 4 to raise important funds for 100% hOPE - an incredible charity founded by King's teacher, Trishell Sayuuni (nee Grady). 100% hOPE partners with poverty-stricken communities in Uganda to promote the spiritual, economic, physical and emotional development of orphaned and underprivileged children. This approach enables future generations of African children to gain hope through educational development.
The fundraising event combined a BBQ lunch with a casual t-shirt day and gold coin donation, successfully raising $2,895.70 for 100% hOPE. Live student performances throughout the lunch break echoed across the high school green and added to the beautiful community spirit at King's.
The next Life event is planned for Thursday, 15 October, and will be the Christmas Festival Lunch. Students are already planning and excited for the final celebration. The funds raised from this event will be used to make Christmas hampers for those in need, and last year students raised enough funds to make 100 hampers to bless families. The second project will be filling over 100 Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes to bless children in need for Christmas. Thanks to our King's community for the consistent generosity you show toward our Life program charities.Find out more about 100% hOPE
