On Thursday March 12 Somerset College participated in the Schools 5 Cup. This Football Tournament for Year 7s took place at Goals Australia.

A group of Year 10 girls held a bake sale for Circus Quirkus, a programme for sending underprivileged kids to an exciting circus performance. The sale was held in the Quad, Monday 5 August.
Who doesn’t love a bake sale? Warm, fragrant deliciousness just waiting to be eaten, all for a good cause.
Together, as a scholarly community, we raised a grand total of... $386! This total will be able to send six kids to the circus!
On the weekend, the group was eagerly at work, baking up a storm! Amongst the flour, sugar and eggs we could hardly catch a break. But it was all worth it when we saw our creations beautifully sitting in front of us, about to be devoured.
The day came and we adorned our most outrageous glasses. Generous souls arrived to feed themselves. Some even bought the equivalent of their lunch for an entire week! All in all, we were extremely grateful for the turnout.
We would like to sincerely thank Mr Walker for an opportunity to support this heartwarming and enjoyable cause. It was an eye-opening experience for all of us, and we hope we will continue this three-year-long tradition for years to come!« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
