Food for thought for hospital

HOSPITAL food is not something anyone craves but eating a meal to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital was on the menu at the Chelsea campus of Oakwood School.

Eighteen students supported VCAL student Beth’s efforts to hold a fundraiser lunch by having a Macca’s meal at school on Friday (9 March) and donating more than $140 towards the Melbourne hospital.

“It was good for Beth to do the charity work for a VCAL unit,” teacher Alex Stavenuiter said.

“She suggested doing something for the hospital but realised kids will support it if it’s a food that’s a treat.”

Oakwood School is a government school aiming to encourage students to stay in school to gain some qualifications for future work. 

The school has campuses in Frankston, Noble Park North and Caulfield North.

There are “pop up” classes held in Rosebud and Hastings on the Mornington Peninsula.
