$12,000 raised for Youth Off The Streets

19-Sep-2014

A Prep movie night and Year 6 sleepout has raised more than $12,000 for Youth Off The Streets (YOTS).

YOTS is a community organisation working with young people who are disadvantaged, homeless, drug dependent and or recovering from abuse.  

An outdoor movie screening of Mrs Doubtfire was held on Ireland Field in mid-September. At the conclusion of the movie night, 40 Year 6 boys and ten Prep teachers slept ‘rough’ in the K-2 Centre without mattresses, pillows or blankets.

The campaign and events were coordinated by Prep Service Learning Captains Ethan Hansen and Oskar Loofs and their families.
