The Glennie Pantry Is Full

The pantry is full – an outstanding 405 kilograms of groceries now fill the shelves of the St Luke’s pantry, thanks to the latest ‘service to others’ initiative run by The Glennie School.Student Representative (SRC) Council of Year 6 students.

Each year, the SRC prides itself on fundraising initiatives that make a real difference in the community. This year, they reached out to St Luke’s Anglican Church to see how their assistance could make the biggest impact.

‘We are so proud of the generosity of our school community. The SRC members were determined to directly help others. The girls developed the idea for the grocery collection and thought weighing the items was a fun way of recording how much we collected,’ explained Mrs Jane Roper, Deputy Head of Junior Years.

St Luke’s Anglican Church Parish provides support for 60 families and/or individuals each week. These people, unfortunately, fall through the cracks with support provided by other charitable organisations.

L-R Front: Jalisa Murray, Clara Andersen, Angeline Hall, Darcy Vaschina, Amalia Gomez-Faramand, Georgia Burke, Reverend Paul Mitchell L-R Middle Row: Reverend Sharon Mitchell, Maya McGrath, Natalie Woodhouse-McLean, Georgina Morton, Mae Grady L-R Back Row: Natalie Hockaday, Belle Clay, Amy Quinlan, Sophie Nobbs, Mrs Jane Roper

‘We recently opened St Luke’s pantry after COVID-19 restrictions forced its closure early this year and our supplies were quite low. The groceries supplied by the most generous Glennie Junior Years families will provide nourishment to many people in need this winter,’ said ​The Rev’d Paul Mitchell.
