The Sorted in School’s Money Jam competition has now closed, and we received some fantastic entries. It was really challenging to pick winners, but two entries stood out!
The winners for the 2022 competition are Albany Junior School and Waikato Diocesan. Each school won a prize of $2,500 to contribute to making their community event happen.
After a pause on many events due to Covid, it is great that these schools can give back to their communities and support these causes with their fundraising events.
Albany Junior School will support the local charity, The Saving Hope Foundation, which rescues abandoned dogs and rehabilitates them before finding them a forever home. The students are running a “Wet Sponge Bonanza” fundraiser at school where students line up to drench their teachers all in the name of a good cause. All donations will go to the Foundation to support the costs associated with caring for the dogs.
Waikato Diocesan will support the local project, the Fairfield Gully Project which is dedicated to bringing back New Zealand’s natural wildlife in suburban areas like Hamilton. The not-for-profit organisation has planted over 20,000 trees in the Fairfield Gully and has plans to plant more. Students will raise money by holding a “Games Day” fundraiser at the school and with student’s also contribute to planting days.
