WSU – International Women’s Day
The Woolwich Students’ Union (WSU) would like to thank the College community for the tremendous levels of support given to their recent ‘One for the Girls Donation Drive’ for International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8 March.
Led by Camille Good and Stevie Russell, the WSU Seniors were not deterred by pouring rain and gave out white ribbons at the College gates in the morning and then collected donations of sanitary products during lunchtime from their stall in the Bon Repos foyer. Over 450 items were donated and the WSU Committee acknowledges the generous response by students, families and teachers.
The volume of donations was the largest ever collected by the WSU and the WSU thanks Dr Ireland, Mrs Alvarez, Ms Muller, Ms Kleist, Ms Vu and Mr Keller for their help with the Donation Drive. The donated goods will be distributed to women in less fortunate circumstances by the St Vincent de Paul Society Lewisham Emergency Accommodation and Homelessness Support Services.
The event was filmed by Sydney Catholic Schools (SCS) and Camille and Stevie were given the opportunity to speak and promote the Marist Values and Charism of the WSU to the broader SCS community.
Several of the WSU Seniors who volunteered to staff the donation stall at lunchtime are pictured here in Bon Repos at the stall, set up very professionally by Ms Muller, with some of the large volume of donations shown.
