Primary Student Representative Council News – Crazy Sock Day

This term the Student Representative Council arranged for Primary students to wear crazy socks to school to raise money and awareness for the Australian charity, Ronald McDonald House.  You can see the cool and crazy sock photo gallery on Pixevity. Click HERE to view photos.

Families at GCC are so generous and we were able to donate $812.50!  Thank you very much.

We aim to support charities with deep meaning or connection to the College.  A member of the SRC had heard about this charity when a friend spent lots of time around a Brisbane hospital last year as their new baby sister needed care.  Another family in our College was able to use the facilities provided by Ronald McDonald House Charity in their time of need.  Thank you to Tim and Elizabeth for sharing their story with us –

Tim and Elizabeth’s Story

We wanted to let you know that we think it’s great that the SRC has chosen Crazy Sock Day to support Ronald McDonald House Charities!  This is an amazing charity that supports families with sick children in so many ways.  We have personally experienced this generosity by having a place to live, a home away from home, on many occasions when our oldest son Benjamin was in hospital.  Our longest stay was 4 months long! They gave us the opportunity for our family to stay together, somewhere to eat meals, wash our clothes, and gain support from other families fighting similar battles.  Benjamin was born with half a heart (HLHS) and he died at the age of four.  Ronald McDonald House also provided us with the opportunity to regroup as a family at their Cairns retreat after Benjamin died.  We will always appreciate the support they gave us and we always participate in Mchappy Day!

We don’t have many photos at Ronnie Mac (as it’s known amongst the families), as we were usually at the hospital with Benjamin, but please find a few below:
