GULGONG HIGH SCHOOL "MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY" CELEBRATION
It was a long week for the Gulgong High Year 12 students as they continue the long-standing tradition of 'Make a Difference Day', students elected to raise money for Ronald McDonald House at their annual school fete on Thursday, September 26.
Students did an amazing job by providing engaging activities for the primary school and high school. The most popular events were the sponge throwing at teachers, the haunted house and face painting.
This is the first year students have included a petting zoo in the school fete, which was also an enormous success. Year 12 have made a donation of $1,500 to Ronald McDonald House, enabling the charity to continue their amazing work.
Ronald McDonald House provides a homely and inviting place to stay for parents, guardians, carers and their siblings while their child is undergoing treatment in a nearby hospital.
