Well done girls

IT was uplifting to read the article in last week�s edition headlined �A lesson in selflessness�.

Those students of Santa Maria and Mercedes College should be very proud of themselves. To give up something as precious as school holidays to help the development of young children is a very commendable act indeed.

Unfortunately, some of the young people you see around the place today make you fear for the future.

But reading about these fine young women gives you a feeling that there is some hope after all.

So, keep up the good work girls and I wish you all the best for the future.
