Year Six FundraiserMonday, 03 December 2012 09:06
As part of our earlier Unit of Inquiry that focused around 'Rights and Responsibilities', the Year Six Class decided to do a fundraiser. After studying human rights, students felt it was important that all children around the world have the right to an education. Therefore, they felt that the proceeds of the fundraiser should go to the ACG supported fund that has built schools in secluded areas of Indonesia. After learning that approximately Rp. 1.000.000 can send a student to school for an entire year, they jumped into action with that being their monetary target.
The class decided that a two day fundraiser would be adequate to raise the needed funds. They organized a 'food fair' where ethnic foods from their various countries would be sold. The second day would be sporting events where students could win prizes for the Soccer Shootout and Water Balloon Toss.
