This year the House Prefects and Year 11 boys from Romsey House organised a family bowling event at the Claremont Bowling Club which raised a record $10,307.23 for the Children’s Leukemia and Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF).

As well as a fun evening of bowling, a number of students also chose to participate in a ‘Head Shave.’ Congratulations to Ollie Wardle (Year 7), Jack Barrett, Billy Ure and Ryan Cowan (Year 8), Evan Dallimore (Year 9) and Zachary Chingin (Year 11) for willingly losing their locks and raising money for such a worthy cause.

Recognising that philanthropy is more than just giving money, Romsey students ran an ‘Hour of Power’ at the Claremont Bowling Club, volunteering their time to clean, weed, sort, wash and complete odd jobs at the bowling club to ensure it was spick and span for the season ahead.

Head of Romsey House, Megan Pentony commented, “It was great to see the boys working together to give back to their community and it enabled us to say ‘thank you’ to the Club for their support over the years. It is fair to say that each and every boy felt a sense of achievement at the end of the day!”

Romsey House have been strong supporters of the CLCRF for many years, helping raise valuable funds for cancer research.
