Queenslea House Aims For The Top
On a chilly, clear Sunday morning at the beginning of August boys from Queenslea House challenged themselves to scale the stairs inside the tallest building in Perth - all in the name of raising money for The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Australia. Seventy boys from Year 7 to Year 12 braved the cold to make the ascent up 53 storeys of Central Park Tower on St Georges Tce. All boys completed the climb in less than twenty-five minutes. Once again, it was terrific to see Queenslea parents participate in the event by supporting their sons in their quest to reach the top.
The quickest time was set in the three-year history of the Queenslea Fundraising event. James Knox achieved this feat in a time of 7:53, a fantastic time indeed.
The event culminated with morning tea and refreshments in the plaza at the base of the building. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the parents of the Queenslea boys who assisted with providing the morning tea.
Queenslea boys rare reminded that their donations need to be given to Mr Gibson by Friday August 27.
