World Vision 40 Hour Challenge
Gerry Atkin - Friday, 14 June 2024, 8:00 AM

This year, the 40 Hour Challenge is being held from the 21st to the 23rd of June which gives us just under a month to prepare and start our fundraising.

Even though the 40 Hour Challenge is in three weeks, it’s important to start fundraising as soon as possible because on the 12th to 14th of June, Sanitarium is hosting a bank day on which they will be doubling whatever amount of money we have by then.

This year our focus country is East Timor where the money will be used to plant trees and climate-proof their villages.

Our goal as a school is to raise $20,000. This may seem like a large number but this is achievable if everyone donates just $11 to a great cause.

This is also a great opportunity to earn citizenship points for your Barrowclough programme.

Some ideas to get you thinking are: 40 hours no furniture, 40 hours no technology or 40 hours no cutlery.

Stay tuned in to the notices as you will be hearing more about this opportunity, how you can help, and some cool prizes along the way.

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER - Registering is fast and easy. Enter your school email address, enter your details and create your password. From there select Palmerston North Boys High - School as your team and set your donation goal etc: You will now be able to share your own page with your friends and family.

Thank you to Mrs. Power who presented this week's book review at assembly on Wednesday.  She reviewed the Artemis Fowl series - Fowl Adventures - written by Eoin Colfer.  All 11 books in the Fowl Adventures series are available in the PNBHS Library and are very popular.
