Year two students at Kalamunda Christian School raised $995 for Hagar International at a cupcake stall on Friday 12 August.
The stall was an initiative of students and families, after Year 2 student Megan came up with the idea when she heard about the work of Hagar International at a school assembly.
Megan has since become passionate about Hagar’s work supporting underprivileged children in Cambodia.
“Some kids in schools in Cambodia don’t even have books or textas and our school has a lot of stuff,” said Megan.
“We have to be grateful for what we have, and try and help others with not as much”, she said.
Deputy Principal Tabatha Grubb said that Kalamunda Christian School has supported Hagar International since 2010.
“We believe in the importance of growing our students to be ‘global citizens’ with a greater sense of understanding for the needs of others around them.
“We teach our students that we have a responsibility to uplift and uphold others in need while acknowledging how fortunate and privileged we are as a community”, she said.
The afternoon included a cupcake sale, of which the cakes were baked and donated by Year 2 Families; competitions such as ‘Guess the Jelly Bean in the Jar’ and ‘Guess the Lucky Cupcake’, of which the prize was donated by Danni’s Cake Wonderland, and a ‘Choc Attack’ cake silent Auction.
Mr Beans Coffee Van also attended and donated part proceeds from coffee sales.
