On Thursday the 20th June, 12 Year 12 & 13 students spent the evening cooking and providing a dinner for over 100 residents at Grafton Mews, the smaller of the two Ronald McDonald houses at Auckland Hospital.

Ronald Mcdonald House Iii

The Ronald McDonald houses are a ‘home away from home’ for families from all over NZ whose ill children require potentially lifesaving treatment. They provide shelter and support for families who must travel to Auckland because the specialist treatment their child urgently requires isn’t necessarily available to them nearby. 

This is the second time this year that we have had this opportunity to provide a meal and on this occasion the King’s Chapel band accompanied us to provide entertainment during and after dinner which was well received and appreciated by the families in residence.

This wonderful opportunity would not be made possible without the tremendous support from Paul Stanton and his staff and Hellabys, who donated all the meat. We do hope we can continue this beneficial relationship that we have with Ronald McDonald which has been going for over 8 years.

The students involved were- Emma Hall (TAY), Emma Howe (TAY), Maddison McConnell (TAY), Lucy Lee (TAY), Evie Clatworthy (TAY) Lily Zhang (MID), Ryan Nguyen (PRT),

Band Deena Kaiaruna (TAY), Alex Sullivan (MID), Yanz Chen (MAJ), Tumua Su’a (MAJ), Mina Mataele (MID) Onosai Auva’a (Teacher in Charge)
