Christian College Hosts Third Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea
BY MEREDITH BLAIR
With almost 250 people in attendance, including members of the Singleton RFS, Police, local businesses and the families of students, Singleton’s Australian Christian College hosted their third Cancer Council Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
The event had guest speakers including Cancer Council’s April Young, as well as HMRI’s senior philanthropy manager Catherine Raftos and post-doctoral researcher Dr Luiza Steffens Reinhardt discussing the role of HMRI in cancer research.
The College’s Kindergarten, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 students also entertained their guests with an impressive performance of ‘Kookaburra’.
Principal Tim Shields is proud of the events growth since it was first held at the college, not imagining how popular and supported the event would become within the community.
“We thought it was a great cause, but we didn’t realise how much people would rally around it. We have the capacity and facilities to host this type of event and as a school we’re a key connection point for people within the community, and cancer is something that’s touched everyone within the community so for people to support it, it just makes sense,” Tim told The Hunter River Times.
