A student initiative run by Marsden House Sacristan Daniel Sewell, saw boys from Marsden House delivering board games to Panama Road Primary School.

040717 Marsden House Helping In The Community

The primary school are in the process of setting up a room for before-school and after-school care and were looking for old games that could be donated for the students to use during these times. 

On Friday 30 June, eight students from Marsden House visited the school to give games and toys to the staff and students at Panama Road Primary. The games and toys were sourced over several weeks from Marsden House students. The students and staff of Panama Road School were most appreciative of the games donated by King’s students.

Daniel Sewell said it was great to be able to see the joy from the students at Panama Road School and they hope to continue to work with the school.

“It was awesome to see the students smiling and the excitement of several kids, who ran up to us on the day asking us what the toys were for. Moving forward, we hope to help with the after-school programme by going along and helping look after the students.”                              

This is one of the many projects that are happening as part of community service at the College. The efforts of the King’s College Community Service Programme were recently recognised at the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board Community Awards. Read more about the awards here.
