ADRA VISIT (28TH MARCH 2023)
IAS had a special visit from Mr Simon Lewis the ADRA Director for the Seventh-day Adventist Church, South Queensland.
Mr Lewis visited the students and staff at Prime Time to accept a monetary donation of $415. The amount collected by our school community during Pancake breakfast, Week Of Worship and Harmony Day is scheduled to help the rebuilding from the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. This follows on with our ‘Grounded’ construction theme from WOW and building our lives on the firm foundation of Jesus.
Mr Lewis shared that ADRA is a development and relief agency which operates locally and overseas to bring change and emergency relief to help communities. The focus of ADRA is in the areas of health, livelihoods and disasters. Currently, the Australian Government is matching all donations towards the earthquake plus 5 times, which turns our amount of $415 into $2075.
Thank you to all our students and school community for your generous donations to help such a worthy cause.
