Teachers and students from South Sydney High School (SSHS) recently donned their red & green as a sign of support and unity with Souths Cares, by hosting a fundraising event with a difference.

The entire school community participated in a fun assembly and a rolling series of activities aimed at raising funds for the charity, that included touch football competitions, face painting and a range of other initiatives.

School Principal, Robin Mathews, is proud of her school’s efforts, which also included wearing red and green to school for the day.

“We thought it was really good timing knowing what Souths Cares does for South Sydney High School and our students,” said Robin.

“We thought it would be really nice to start the season off by having a red and green day and that meant that our students were all working across the school to do activities to raise money to Souths Cares to support the programs.”

But the fundraising is far from over, with an online auction of a signed Game Day jersey worn by former Rabbitoh Jeff Lima and a raffle where the winner receives a signed Rabbitohs Football.
