Tenison Woods College students have put their best feet forward to raise money for Timor-Leste. The college recently held its annual Charity Ball, marking 10 years since the first Timor-Leste immersion.
The Charity Ball was introduced as one of the main fundraising initiatives back in 2016, and has since become a highlight on the student’s social calendar. Year 11 and 12 students enjoyed a great night of music, food and drinks provided by the talented Academy of Hospitality students and staff, as well as an auction of ‘money-cannot-buy’ experiences to raise funds for Timor-Leste.
“Even though the immersion cannot be held this year and students not able to visit the communities the College support at present, Tenison Woods College continues its commitment with much needed monetary donations,” a college spokesperson said. “Many thanks to all staff who contributed to make this year’s Charity Ball such a success; the Public Relations and Events team, Jen McCourt, Jen Vanikiotis and the Academy of Hospitality students, the amazing college staff who made items, delivered items, donated goods and supervised on the night; the night would not have happened without their support.
“Special thanks to the Mount Gambier City Council for providing the venue and Donut King for supplying delicious donuts. “A big thank you must go to the students that attended who danced the night away, supported the auction and made the ordinary extraordinary.”
