Imagine this … BBQs firing, snow cones freezing, ice cream scooping, lollies popping and doughnuts drizzling … this, and so much more. Wednesday 31, August 2022 was the post-COVID return of Market Day at Waverley College.
To witness Year 10 Commerce and Food Technology students confident, primed and prepped to encounter the masses, for what was an exhilarating 40 minutes, was something to be believed.
Every stall sold out, and of course, a sugar rush ensued. But the one common theme from this special day was that everyone loved it and now can’t wait for the next one (in 2023). We are super proud of all the students – the way they took on this challenge, and how they made it a great success.
The money raised from this day will be directed to two very important College charities: The Chris O’Brien Lifehouse specialising in cancer treatment, and R U OK? which encourages all young people to seek help when struggling mentally.
An outstanding $3,258.95 was raised, and now will be split evenly between the two charities. The Waverley community certainly makes waves with supporting charities, and a huge thank you to all who donated and got involved.
This day would not have been possible without the guidance and support of the Year 10 Commerce and Food Technology teaching teams, five fabulous markers, Heads of House, TAS Assistants, Marketing, IT, Maintenance, Finance and Cleaning Teams … and all of the staff who assisted or visited the stalls. But the biggest thanks goes to the Year 10 Commerce students; their hard work and community spirit was exemplary.
