On the 28th of July (Thursday Week 3) the Secondary students will be having a free dress day to Support Daisy Drake’s humanitarian mission to Kenya in Africa. The free dress theme is black, red and green, the colours of the Kenyan Flag. A gold coin donation is expected. Those who do not bring a gold coin donation or are not dressed in-theme will be expected to pay $4 on the next day so please ensure you remember your donation and are dressed in the right colours.
Daisy Drake is travelling to Raifiki Mwema, an all-girls home in Nakuru,Kenya, which has one of the world’s highest rates of population growth. The population has tripled in the past 35 years, therefore placing pressure on the country’s resources and leaving young people extremely vulnerable to poverty. Women are more vulnerable, due to the unequal social status and access to economic assets. Daisy will also be providing food and building homes for the homeless.
