Snacks with compassion: Year 4 stall

Year 4 students ran a snack stall to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation, a charity that grants the wishes of children who are battling critical illnesses.

After learning about the foundation from a class parent, the students were motivated to do something to make a difference to a young New Zealander facing adversity.

The initiative also formed part of a Humanities topic in which students learned about producers and consumers. They spent the term working towards the event, making snacks to sell and building a donation box to set up in reception to collect funds in advance.

Year 4 teacher Miss Hewertson said the successful event showed motivation and compassion on the part of the class. “We’d really like to thank everyone who donated and brought snacks on the day for such a worthwhile cause,” she said.

The stall raised $1,160 for the charity, which will be presented to the foundation at the primary prize giving on 4 December.
