Farrer Leo's Sleepout

Leo's Sleepout

On Saturday 28th May, the Farrer Leo’s ran a ‘Vinnies Community Sleepout’ to raise awareness of the realities faced by those experiencing homelessness and disadvantage. Approximately 50 students attended and experienced a night in the elements under the stars.

Students were faced with a huge storm at the beginning of the night that left the camp site quite wet and muddy, but that didn’t stop them from enjoying an eventful evening of spotlight, damper cooking, sporting activities and marshmallows by the campfire.

With the help of the school community, the boys raised over $1200 that will go towards those in need, via our local St. Vincent de Paul society.

Well done to Jono Cox (Year 8) who raised the highest amount of money, with a total of $473.50, and a big thank you to the Mrs Milne, Mrs Klepzig, Mr Smith, Mr McVey, Miss Bailey, the farm staff and the refectory staff who all gave up their time to ensure the event ran smoothly.

A special thank you also to our Farrer Leo’s who organised and ran such a worthwhile event: Jack Hatton, Lachlan Overton, Alex Urquhart, Zac Craig, Lachlan Elliott, Sam Rosewell, Shannon Charters and Jack Lyon.
