Narrogin TAFE students have raised money for the Rainbow Women’s Centre to buy essentials for women and children escaping family or domestic violence. South Regional TAFE Narrogin students, who were completing a Certificate I in Leadership, were tasked with working together on a team project. The students chose to put their new skills to the test by fundraising for the women’s centre to help residents feel more connected with the community. Rainbow Women’s Centre provides safe accommodation for women and children escaping violence or homelessness. Wheatbelt Family and Domestic Violence program manager Tara Lanciano visited the class last month to receive the donation of essential items. Narrogin TAFE campus manager Sonia Hogermeer said it was wonderful to see the students work together to support a great cause. “The students sold a variety of sweets, cookies, slices and fudge, as well as plants,” she said. “The funds they raised were spent on buying toiletries to assist the women and children who use the refuge.” TAFE student Phoebe Lyddieth-Jones said it was a worthwhile exercise that all students enjoyed.
