Project Care - Exciting Events Ahead
After a successful term of fundraising for East Timor, we will continue to raise needed funds and resources for other worthy causes.
Casual Dress Day - Friday, 3rd August - Jeans for Genes Day
On Friday, 3rd August, Christian College Junior School will be participating in a Casual Dress Day with students bringing along a gold coin donation for Jeans for Genes Day. Jeans for Genes raises money for the Children’s Medical Research Institute, to fund research that helps diagnose, understand, and find cures or treatments for conditions affecting children. These conditions include genetic diseases, cancer, and epilepsy. By raising funds, we are helping researchers cure genetic diseases and other serious conditions affecting 1 in 20 children – that’s nearly one child in every classroom. Every cent helps to fight against genetic disorders, and improve the lives of millions of children around the world.
