Christchurch Earthquake

Welcome to our blog site where students at the Royal Children's Hospital can follow our project. Our aim is to gain an understanding of the Christchurch earthquake and how it has affected the young people of Christchurch. Our hope is to fundraise money through our projects that will benefit those affected.

A big big thank you - we reached our target!!

Just wanted to say a very,  very  BIG thank you to everyone who has jumped on board and helped make our Trans Tasman project possible.  In particular to Giuseppe for contributing immensely and really managing the project for majority of the duration. To Allesha  for putting in so many of the hard yards with her students on 3east.  The project really wouldn’t have been so successful without  the work of you both.

Thank you so much to Andrew from Ties ‘n’ cuffs (donation of the pins), David and his staff at the Station Hotel in Prahran (selling our merchandise & the bbq)  and Martin from Recognition ID (donation of the pens). Your generosity is incredibly humbling and has allowed us to raise this wonderful amount.

To everyone else for selling, managing, eating, wearing, donating  and spreading the word – Fantastic and thank you!


Although we haven’t quite finished, we are pleased to inform you that we have actually surpassed our $1000 target!!!   We have approx $1300 and we still have a further  2 weeks of fundraising left. This is not including the fantastic Scholastic donation of books (thank you Glenda).

In the next 3-4 weeks the wellbeing activity for the students at Chisnallwood Intermediate School will be decided.  We will inform you  of the outcome and final amount raised.

Thank you again, you surely have contributed to brightening the day of these brave and resilient kids.
