Queenslea Climb for Charity
The boys in Queenslea House had a Father’s Day with a difference, as they gave up their weekend leisure time to raise funds for the Make-a-Wish Foundation Australia.
Beautiful spring weather greeted the sixty students who ran to the top of Central Park Tower for the second year of this event. Sam Matyear (Year 11), Andrew Ford (Year 9) and Sebastian Simich (Year 8) were the first three boys to cross the finishing line at the rooftop after scaling the 1096 steps.
At the top, the participants were rewarded with stunning views of the Perth Central Business District and enjoyed a light morning tea in the plaza afterwards.
Head of Queenslea House Digby Gibson said there had been a great display of enthusiasm for the event. “A good pace was set by all of the boys as they raced up the stairs to raise money,” he said.
“My thanks go out to all of the supportive Queenslea parents who attended and for those brave mums and dads who also scaled to the top as well. I look forward to joining the Queenslea boys in running to the top of Central Park Tower in the Queenslea Stair Climb in 2010.”
