Students raise $1200 in 40-Hour Famine
Brisbane Water Secondary College Woy Woy campus students have raised more than $1200 as part of the 40-Hour Famine.
Students participated in a Backpack Challenge earlier in the month where they lived the life of a young refugee, who often only had moments to fill a backpack or small bag with essentials and then flee their home.
Campus principal Ms Rebecca Cooper said funds raised through the students' campaign were still being finalised and commended students on their efforts.
"Naturally we celebrated with pizza and sharing stories of how we survived," Ms Cooper said.
