On Friday the 23rd of October the Mercy Christian School held its annual fundraiser in its new school site in Burn’s Creek. The day was a great success with hundreds of people from the community coming to enjoy food, music, games, a second-hand shop and great raffle prizes. Everyone enjoyed the positive atmosphere of the day and spent many hours eating together, talking and watching local dance performances.
The second-hand shop was very popular with people lining up for their chance to find a bargain. It was wonderful to see so many people walking away with clothes, shoes and books at great prices.
A representative from Seif Ples, Brian, came to provide information about the Domestic Violence Resource Centre at Rove. The community appreciated the fact that he had volunteered his time to come and provide information about the centre and the services it offers.
The students enjoyed the face painting and the card games throughout the day. The parents of the Mercy students did an amazing job in setting up their stalls for the fundraiser and providing delicious food for sale. They should all be commended on their commitment to helping raise money for future school developments.
Mercy Christian School has developed at an exponential rate by building four new classrooms and a library within the last 12 months. Another classroom building is currently under construction to provide another 4 classrooms and an office which are desperately required for the school which is one of the most populated in the country. The money raised from the fundraiser will contribute to future developments for the school.
The school would like to thank the following business for their generous donations to the fundraiser; Tong’s Hardware, C&I Electrics, Bowman’s Hardware, Jaycar Electronics, Island Enterprises, Honiara Hardware, Humphrey Engineering, Honiara Golf Club, Lime Lounge Café, Nambawan Meats, Sullivan’s, Value City, Red Shed and Bamboozle Skateboards.
We thank you for your ongoing support to improving the educational environment for the students in Burn’s Creek.
