Tintern Lights the Way
In the last week of Term 2, students from Year 3-11 had the opportunity to engage in making one or more solar lights, through the Solar Buddy Charity. Solar Buddy has been the recipient of all funds raised from Green Team and Social Justice Group events and fundraisers over 2020-21. Bake sales, market stalls and the trivia nights, along with many other events have all contributed to purchasing 425 solar powered lights. The lights were assembled by Tintern Students and were accompanied with a hand-written letter to be delivered to the recipient along with the light, in an energy-deprived area of the world. The lights are now undergoing quality control and will then soon be sent overseas. Thank you to everyone in the community for your support in our fundraising efforts over the past year. These solar powered lights will make a huge difference in over 2000 individuals’ lives, and this could not have been done without your support.
