Dear Canterbury Community,

Our 2023 Student Leadership Group would like to invite all students in Years 5-11 and their families, to our Canterbury Christmas Appeal Fundraiser.

Come and celebrate the end of the school year, and get into the Christmas spirit with us, as we enjoy some Christmas Carols Karaoke, a Christmas Movie, and donating resources to the less fortunate members of our wider Logan community.

This year, we are supporting two separate local charities, who we’ve worked with already throughout 2022.

Both Rosies: Friends On The Street and Orange Sky Australia support marginalised people in our community.

Rosies: Friends On The Street is a charity organisation which aims to offer friendship and unconditional acceptance to those who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or are experiencing social isolation.

Canterbury is hosting this fun family night to encourage our school community to build their awareness around the issue of homelessness.

And more importantly, to gather donated items (described in the table below), which Rosies can distribute directly to those in need as care packs.

Each College House will be tasked with bringing different items to donate to the Rosies Appeal.

These will be placed under the relevant Christmas Tree inside the Canterbury Events Centre (CEC).

The items required from each House are:




Christmas gifts: playing cards, puzzles, board games, small card games e.g. Uno etc.


Small backpacks, drink bottles, toothbrush containers etc.


Personal hygiene items: body wash, deodorant, toothbrush and toothpaste, sanitiser etc.


Personal hygiene items: body wash, deodorant, toothbrush and toothpaste, sanitiser etc.


Christmas socks, boxers, beanies, undergarments etc.


Non-perishable Christmas treats: Christmas cakes, sweets, puddings, biscuits, snacks etc.
(NB: Avoid chocolate as it melts).

Orange Sky Australia provides a positive and supportive environment for people who are too often ignored or feel disconnected from the community.

They provide regular laundry and shower services for homeless people.

The Canterbury Community has supported this organisation throughout the year, and funds raised at this event - via the gold coin entry donations, and food and drink sales, will further support this worthy cause.

This is sure to be a wonderful community event, where students of all ages and their families, can get together in the Christmas spirit of giving and community.

Parents & Carers – If you have any questions about this event, please get in touch with your child’s Head of House.

Students – Please approach any of our College Student Leaders who can support you with more information.

Kind regards

Mr Tory Mills

Acting Head of Secondary School
Canterbury College
