St Benedict’s students raise money for Inka Respite through sweet sale

ST BENEDICT’S School students made and sold their own sweets to raise nearly $800 for Inka Respite, which suffered damage in the Lake Clifton fires.

The money will be used to buy more native plants to re-landscape the grounds.

Inka Respite is a farm stay for adults and children with special needs, and last year St Benedict’s students raised money for a vegetable patch at the facility.

Yesterday chunks of rocky road wrapped and tied with blue ribbon were going for $2 and jelly cups were quickly demolished under the cries of students spruiking their wares from their respective stalls.

The Year 5 project was dubbed Masterchef and participants spent a term incorporating their English, maths, business and economics, health and design and technology subjects to create group projects.
