On Tuesday 1st September, a handful for year 8 students volunteered their time to raise money for the thousands of people who have been affected by the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon. They collected donations from staff and students and also sold maroon wristbands for $2 which state #HBHS Stands with Refugees. Through their awesome efforts we raised $295.40 and this money will go directly towards helping those affected in Beirut. They have shared their experiences on volunteering at our school.
