Community College students Ting Ting Guo, teacher Helen Dugdale, students Kathryn Hopkins, Chloe Ayscough and Brooklyn Bostock present a cheque to Renae Weakley and Donna Young of The Narrabri Homelessness Support Service.

Narrabri Community College students decided to raise funds for a local charity as their project to be part of their course in Certificate II in the Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways course, ‘Next Steps - Women returning to Work’.

The students succeeded and raised more than $1000 for the charity they chose, the Women’s Refuge.

“As we are a women’s class, we decided to raise funds for the Narrabri Women’s Refuge”, said student, Kathryn Hopkins.

“The project helped the students develop a number of skills - goal-setting tasks, communication skills, team-work, public relations and learning about their local community” a Community College spokeswoman said.
