Market to raise funds for school

STUDENTS of Marcellin House, Chanel College, will be holding a mini-market to raise funds for the Aelita School in East Timor and for the Marist Teachers’ College Sponsorship Scheme. 

Six Chanel students will be going to East Timor in September to work with the students and their families as part of an Immersion Experience.

The children of Aelita currently attend school in a split bamboo, dirt floor hut with desks made from split bamboo with a length of bamboo for their seats. 

The people of Aelita have already donated land for a new school and are willing to build the school themselves but do not have the ability to buy materials. 

The market will be held at the Parish Centre in Herbert Street on Sunday, July 25, starting at 10am and finishing at 2pm. 

There will be a sausage sizzle/cold drinks, garage sale, stalls selling books, jewellery, tie-dyed clothing and linen, homemade kids clothing, second hand kids and women’s clothing.

Stallholders can contact Katrianne Butterworth at Chanel College on 49781566 or email butterworthk1@chanelcollege.qld.edu.au.
