Relay for life

On the weekend over 150 senior students participated in Relay for Life, as well as other independently-organised Year 9 and Year 10 teams. This year the staff also entered into the 24 hour event, in a team called ?Walking for Ana?.

Vanuatu

It has also been decided to contribute $4000 to the recovery and rebuilding of Vanuatu after cyclone Pam (money has already sent using remainder of 2014 RAS Charity Fundraiser funds).

There are so many wonderful causes here that need our support, and we look to the community to do what they can. The more we raise, the more we can give.

Make a donation to the RAS Charity Fundraiser online at Trybooking.

Students can also bring their donations into their tutor or any reception.

Thank you for your generosity.
