Almost 100 girls at Hasmonean High School participated in a group fruit crumble making session.

Noa Gilbert, year 10 told us, “The activity was really fun. It showed me that doing good does not only bring joy and happiness to the receiver but brings joy to me too as the giver.

It’s good to know that through this fun activity, my classmates and I put a smile on many people’s faces. I hope to be doing something similar again soon.
