If you have walked past the Student Services Hub, you may have noticed the new colourful additions hanging off the second floor of the Gallus building. These vibrant new banners were created by a group of Year 7 to 12 students during Somerset College's first World Vision Backpack Sleepover Challenge.

Last Wednesday night, we committed to living out of a backpack, bringing only our essentials. From bonding with new friends to getting our hands dirty with paint, this challenge was both extremely fun and an exceptional way to raise awareness for refugee and displaced children.

I'd also like to thank Miss Capper and Mr Walker for giving up their Wednesday evening to help raise funds and awareness for the plight of refugees.
