Rotary's Project MOM caring for kids

The Hygiene Packs were gratefully received by our Student Support Team pictured here with Geoff Brady and Heather Irvine from the Rotary Club of Mount Gravatt

Rotary Clubs do a wonderful job in local communities and the Rotary Club of Mount Gravatt overwhelmed our Student Support Team when they popped in with Hygiene Packs, for our students as part of their ‘Project MOM’ Minding Our Matters mission. A cause started by Nim Prasad to let young people in crisis know someone cares about them, their wellbeing and that they are not alone.

Pictured receiving the packs are Mr Wilson, Guidance Officer, Mrs Budge, Guidance Officer, Megan Smith, Youth Health Nurse and Miss Campbell, Deputy Principal. 

Rotary is an entirely volunteer organisation, raising funds to support those in need and the MOM Hygiene Packs will support children in need, each pack contains toiletry items. “The main items teenagers need when they are in crisis so that they feel better about themselves” Heather Irvine, from the Rotary Club of Mt Gravatt, told the Student Support Team, something the team are well aware of and were very grateful to receive the packs.

Rotary Mt Gravatt work closely with young people through many of their programs, including their Exchange Student Program. Geoff Brady from Rotary Mt Gravatt said, “Many of our exchange students have been accommodated by Mt Gravatt High School, including our current student visiting from Denmark”.
