School takes up a challenge
Living Below the Line
St Michael's Collegiate School students and staff recently took part in the Live Below the Line campaign where they took up the challenge to feed themselves for just $2 per day.
The campaign is designed to raise funds and awareness about poverty and represents a meaningful way for participants and sponsors to make a difference in the lives of the 1.4 billion people around the world who live in extreme poverty.
Funds raised will be directed toward breaking the cycle of poverty in remote Papua New Guinea, East Timor and Cambodia by helping provide access to education for the first time for thousands of children and young people.
Collegiate students organised a Live Below the Line Breakfast Club [which] served breakfasts based on the food of a country where people live in extreme poverty, and invited participants from other local schools and guest speakers to share a meal together.
