Our Sister School
- Three members of our team experienced the magnitude of the Christchurch earthquakes. Two were at the same school, Cashmere High School, and were attending during the time when Cashmere High site shared with Linwood College.
- This personal connection was remembered and so the team decided to make a charitable donation to Linwood College as a way of showing that our hearts go out to those who still endure aftershocks. $1 from the Rimu and Pine sets will be going to the College that was badly damaged during the earthquakes.
- Also, from the Earthquake Edition Ecoasters, sold at $19.99, $5 will be donated to the school. Linwood College had one of it's main buildings decleared unsafe and therefore need to be relocated to Cashmere High, where they stayed for over 5 months before being able to return to their own campus.
- Cashmere High students had the morning shift of 8am to 12.35pm, whilst Linwood College had the afternoon shift of 1pm to 5.30pm- this meant Linwood College students had to make their way home in rush hour traffic, heightened by road closures, with some students returning home at 7pm! We had short 45 minute periods, meaning we needed to work harder to get the same amount done.
