Keeping Locals Warm and Fed This Winter
By River Teixeira, Year 7 and Miku Adachi Year 11, Students
Local charity, Walk with Us took delivery of many meals this week provided by Somerset families. They were overwhelmed and extremely grateful.

In Week 5, Veivers held the annual fundraiser- the beloved Milkshake stall, raising money for the house charity, Guide Dogs Queensland. The event held in the Towers Quad was a great success, with $600 raised for the charity.
This year, the addition of music and a grassed area to unwind, chat while enjoying the milkshake added a new, positive atmosphere.
The Guide Dogs Queensland is acknowledged as a leading provider in training dogs as a mobility option for people who are blind and vision impaired. As a non-for profit organisation, the funds raised through the sale of the favourite milkshake flavours; chocolate, strawberry, vanilla and caramel raised an outstanding $600.00 for the charity.
The incredible volunteers from Veivers house did an amazing job of co-ordinating and managing the production of the milkshakes, with over 100 helpers from Years 7 to 12 over the two days. The Milkshake stall is not only successful in raising funds for Guide dogs but also successful for bringing Veivers house together for a marvellous cause.
Thanks must also go to Mr Zernike for allowing the Junior School to come out early after lunch to support this event. Thank you to all the amazing Veivers volunteers, Mr Attoe and Mrs Amores for making this fundraiser possible.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
