Music and muffins in students’ Red Nose fundraiser By Jamie Adams

Wellington College students got into the spirit of charity with a fundraising event to finish term 3 on Friday. Year 11 student Ken Rayner and seven of his schoolmates organised a concert and baking sale during lunchtime. It was the first time the school has held such a fundraiser. The concert in the school’s Brierley Hall featured a number of talented student acts, especially from soloists Roshi Sneyd and Sanjay Tejas, whose excellent singing and

guitar work would suggest a future career in music. While that was going several students stall sold red-nose-themed muffins and cupcakes, with all proceeds going to Cure Kids. A total of $817 was raised from the combination of baking sales and raffle tickets for the concert, with prizes donated by a number of CBD businesses. Cure Kids aimed to raise more than $1 million towards vital research to improve, extend and save the lives of Kiwi children with serious illnesses and conditions.

With Suzanne Aubert being declared ‘Venerable’ by Pope Francis, New Zealand is on track to get its first Catholic Saint. During her life, Mother Aubert greatly influenced progress in such areas as health, education, women’s rights and social welfare, as well as founding a religious congregation. Her work in the fields of medicine, Maori language and an evolving New Zealand spirituality was pioneering and far-reaching. To mark her day of celebration – the first Sunday in October - the churches in Island Bay are coming together to celebrate the life and work of this social and religious pioneer, and champion of children and the poor, with a festival called CompassionFest. This festival running over the first weekend in October has events for all the family, including a day of activities for children, a children’s tour of Home of Compassion’s new exhibits, a historical society talk on 1900s Island Bay, a pop-up Soup Kitchen, a homebrew beer-tasting evening, native tonics workshop and a symposium called “What does compassion have to do with running a country”, as well as worship services. The first event in the Festival is For Compassion’s Sake: an art exhibition. This will be running the week leading up to the festival in the Island Bay Presbyterian Church lounge, with contributors having been invited to submit work illustrating either the life of Suzanne Aubert or the virtue of compassion. The beer-tasting event ‘Splendid Drop’ will feature a unique beer brewed by
