Students run amok for charity

Year 12 students from Warnervale’s MacKillop Catholic College have run amuck in the best way possible.

While muck up days are a rite of passage for Year 12, at MacKillop the mischievous spirit of the day has been channeled into a cause, raising money for charity.

Known as Charity Day, students are still able to dress up, cut loose and act a little silly as they swim in the usually out of bounds College dam, blast music and saran wrap the odd bit of school property, but they do all that while collecting donations from the school community to put towards a cause of their choosing.

The Class of 2020’s Charity Day was held on September 22 and all up, their efforts saw just over $1,500 raised for their nominated charities, Starlight Children’s Foundation and the Sister Marea’s Foundation, a local charity that supports disadvantaged families, run by the College’s resident nun.
