STUDENTS AT Hornby High School have been giving to their community by fundraising for the Salvation Army, raising more than $5000 in cash and donating a more than equal value of canned food.

The project is lead by the programme's peer mentors, made up of senior students who organised a mufti-day.

All students wearing mufti donated a can of food and a gold coin.

The students chose to support the Salvation Army as they recognised the significant contribution the charity made to their community.

Consequently, a very proud group of young people presented the cheque to a Salvation Army representative this week.

"Giving to your community is a key component of the Stars programme delivered at the school by the Graeme Dingle Foundation," says Stars coordinator Lucretia Treadgold.

The programme is designed to make the transition into high school a more positive experience for year 9 students while also providing leadership and citizenship development opportunities for senior students.

It helps them build confidence, improve communication and relationship building skills and strengthen their time management and planning skills. This together supports increased social and academic outcomes.

"It's all about growing great Kiwi kids here in Hornby", Mrs Treadgold said.
