Sunshine Coast Grammar School’s Year 12 students took the opportunity to help others less fortunate this weekend by rolling up their sleeves for their annual ‘Backyard Blitz’ in support of a Beerwah couple doing it tough.
The couple were referred to the school’s Community Service Group, Grammar Helping Hands, by Bloomhill Cancer Care. A community partnership which has allowed students to display true leadership in action through connecting with those who need it most.
Coordinator of Community services at Sunshine Coast Grammar School, Mr Ben Princehorn says that the tradition of the Year 12s taking on their own blitz and coming together as a cohort in support of their local community has been happening here for almost six years.
“It is a truly memorable moment for the students in their final year to be able to band together alongside one another in the spirit of community and true comradery to do something worthy, while leaving a lasting impression on a truly deserving family,” said Mr Princehorn.
The backyard blitz saw students tidying, mowing, clipping and digging in to support the Beerwah couple who were most grateful for the help during a time of need.
