A group of Tereora College students has given a generous donation to the Cook Islands SPCA as a part of the school’s Community Service Day.

 

The students provided a free sausage sizzle and any members of the community who wanted to, could make a donation to the SPCA.

The annual community service day is an initiative where staff and students get involved in serving the wider community.

Principal Tania Morgan it is an opportunity to invest in the local community and the people who live in it.

“The purpose of this is to give back to the wider community by serving and making a difference.”

The students took part in many other activities including a clean-up of Avana Harbour, volunteering at Esther Honey and helping with children’s activities at Blackrock Pre-School and Apii Nikao.

The students also provided breakfast for St Joseph Primary School, Rutaki School and lunch for Landholdings.

Another clean-up was held at the Social Centre as well as painting upgrades around the community and visits to the elderly.

Morgan said providing a service back to the community strengthened the relationships between school and community.

The students presented a cheque of $243 to the Cook Islands SPCA early this month.

Sandra Lovering from SPCA said the students’ fundraiser was great idea and wonderful surprise.

“We were truly humbled and thrilled to be the recipients of their fantastic donation.”
