This week is a celebration of National Boarding week and the Glennie boarders raised $184 for the Australian Boarding Schools' Association (ABSA) fundraiser Beanies for Brain Cancer. There was considerable fun at the Hometown dinner last week. The girls also participated in a walk organised by boarder Captain Lucy Geddes and Vice-Captain Bella Joseland. ABSA does considerable work with boarding schools to provide support, encourage friendships between schools and supply professional training.
The Year 6 and 7 boarders joined in by creating small paintings on canvas about Glennie and home. The plan is to join the images together to create one large painting. The boarders were invited to write a small piece on why they loved boarding, and there were many heartwarming responses.
