The Chefs for Compassion Awards and Appreciation Evening was held in the Tindall Auditorium on Saturday, 28th November. Chefs for Compassion is a programme in which students at a school, supported by their parents and teaching staff, help families who are experiencing difficult times by cooking them a special meal. Families are nominated by agencies such as Child Cancer Society, the Open Home Foundation, Rotary and the Catholic Caring Foundation. The programme is the brainchild of Marty Smith. The Year 7 and 8 students, who were part of the Chef for Compassion programme in 2015, were awarded a certificate and a special ‘Champions for Compassion’ apron.
