Appeal for Donations for the container being sent to Tupou College

The container is now more than 50 % Full!

Thank you to everyone that has contributed much needed resources for the staff and students of Tupou College.

Please have your son drop off any other donations to Fletcher House Locker Area during school hours (there is a cupboard covered in Tongan Photos that is clearly labelled).

Please see the list below for the resources that we hope to send.

I am hoping that the container will depart in early December!

Kind regards
Cameron Quince
