More than 20 students in Grades 10-12 from St Peters Lutheran College got involved with the 40 Hour Famine Backpack Challenge last week.
The challenge involved students living off only a few essential items which they carry in their backpack. The students used the opportunity to raise funds to provide welfare for refugee children.
Some students added extra challenges for themselves including no speaking, no private transport and no phone access. One student, Dyllis said, “I’m inspired by the work of World Vision Australia and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in 40 Hour Famine 2019.”
