7 June

Workday is an annual event at Garin College. Part of our Special Character and who we are, an opportunity to give back to the community and raise funds for others and our school. It is on the Tuesday after Queen’s Birthday weekend (Tuesday 7 June). Students are not expected at school on this day while staff will be attending professional development at school. Buses will not run to Garin College on 7 June.

There are three focuses for the day:

  • raising money to be able to continue improvements around school that directly benefit our student community, local food bank and Caritas
  • contribution to supporting our sponsor children
  • the filtered water dispenser by the canteen, new couches for the library, student indoor and outdoor seating and the basketball hoop outside B block.

Students can share their ideas for use of the funds raised in 2022 by completing the online survey during whānau time.
