Damascus College to hold fundraiser for sister school Santa Maria College

Damascus College will hold a trivia night to raise money for its East Timor immersion trip.

The trip to Timor Leste, which has been held since 2011, will take place between June 22 and July 3 this year.

Students will travel to the college’s sister school, Santa Maria College, in Ainaro. 

Year 11 student Imogen Coles said the trip was a fantastic opportunity to travel to another country and learn about a different culture.

“I am really looking forward to the trip, and having the opportunity to fundraise throughout the year is significant, and then to donate those funds to help our sister school is something that I am very proud of, as I am confident it will assist the Timorese people to build a better life for themselves,” Imogen said.

The trivia night will be held on Saturday, May 27 at 7pm at Damascus College. Cost is $15 per head, with tables of eight.
