Student vs. Staff Benchball Game

On Thursday 17th August, MHJC hosted a Student vs. Staff Benchball Game. This game was organised by four year 10 students as a part of their Global Studies Social Action.

Students who attended the game donated canned goods and a gold coin. A total of $177.60 and 31 cans were raised, all going to the Feed the Need Foundation. This foundation helps to assist those in poverty.

Well done to all who took part and thank you to all who donated!
