On Friday 19 May the Geelong Rotary Club held the Jazz Swings 2, In the Mood for Mental Health charity event to raise money for youth mental health services. This evening had students form North Geelong Secondary, Belmont Highschool and Kardinia International College performing Jazz numbers and of course North Geelong Secondary students catering for the event. The VET Hospitality class provided a supper of chocolate brownies, gingernut biscuits, mini meringues and individual lemon tarts. Our students were exemplars of our college values Respect, Excellence, Achievement and Diversity. They are to be congratulated on their hard work leading up to and on the night, helping to raise over $7500.
Thank you Malenga, Beh Meh, Ruby, Gordon, Lauren, Pray Meh, Elister, Nin Nin, Lay Paw, Say They, Hayden and Logan.
NGSC VM Lifeblood Community Project
This year, our Vocational Major class has been learning about the work of the Australian Red Cross Lifeblood for our Community Project. We have decided to raise awareness, funds and hopefully blood, plasma and platelet donations for Lifeblood Geelong.
This project is very important because, in Australia, 1 in 3 people will need blood at some point in their life. And one blood donation is needed every 24 seconds.
We are encouraging staff at NGSC and members of our school community, that are over 18 years old, to support us by registering to donate blood, plasma or platelets and selecting the North Geelong Secondary College Team: donateblood.com.au Every donation saves three lives, so the best part about joining our team is you will be a real life superhero!
If you can’t donate blood, or aren’t 18 yet, you can still support this project with a gold coin donation to participate in our lolly jar guessing competition. This will be held at lunchtime, this term, during Week 6. All funds raised will also be donated to the Australian Red Cross.
We will report back later in the term with the total number of lives we’ve saved and funds we’ve raised!
