The Outreach Leadership Portfolio focuses on giving back to our community.

We started the year with a school wide collection of books. Our target was 200 books and we were able to collect over 750 books. These were donated to Kleinberg Primary to start their library.

In Term 2 we collected dry goods for hungry families.

In Term 3 the whole school participated in Mandela Day. We collected shoeboxes and spent our 67 minutes of service on the 18th of July by decorating these boxes. The boxes were filled with good quality second hand shoes and donated to needy children in Ocean View. A total of 142 shoes were donated!

The school participated in Slipper Day this year and raised funds for the Reach for a Dream Foundation. This Foundation strives to fulfil the dreams of terminally ill children.

We also have an ongoing collection of breadtags which we send to Woodside Special Care Centre to help towards the donation of wheelchairs.
