Middle Harbour have been alongside Team Vista for many years now. The continued support by students, families and the wider Middle Harbour family has been significant, and greatly appreciated by Team Vista. The families, students and Middle Harbour community, in different fundraising ventures have raised well over $10 000.
Students have gone far and beyond, often sacrificing birthdays and pocket money. Mrs Kerry Frost (Team Vista Director & Middle Harbour School Teacher) rarely has a week where a student has not brought in some money, either from a fundraising effort, such as busking or from a sacrificial gesture as mentioned before.
What have the students been up to this year? A few words from Kerry Frost...
Before the holidays, we held our annual Harmony Day at Middle Harbour. The children all bought in a gold coin, with the SRC running a cake stall as well. The money raised went to our charity school in Kaloleni, Moshi Tanzania. Last year I took a small group of students from MH and ex students with their parents over to visit the community in Tanzania. The school had raised around $2000 which was to be used to help the Primary school in Kaloleni to buy books.On visiting the school, our year 6 girl handed over the money to the Head Teacher, however Rachel (Principal) explained that the students really needed food more than books as most of them were coming to school hungry.That money was enough to feed close to 700 children a daily bowl of makanda..a mixture of beans for the year!
From Harmony day this year the children raised $1600. One of my year 3 boys, Mitchell and his mum also made bracelets and key rings which raised another $200. One little year 2 boy Alfie bought in all his really good second hand picture books and sold them to Kindy parents and raised another $200!!
I am also getting money left in my Moshi money box weekly and the little ones set up stalls on the weekends selling cup cakes etc.
Two other amazing families split the costs of purchasing a photocopier for the Primary school in Kaloleni. (Team Vista are organising electricity to go into one of the rooms for the photocopier)
The children at Middle Harbour are absolutely amazing!!
