Orange Week Can Collection for Auckland City Mission

One in five Auckland families are currently struggling to put food on the table. This winter, the need for non-perishable food was higher than ever in order to stop kids going hungry and to allow families to have breakfast, lunch and dinner.


TGS’s Orange Week is an important house event in which students brought in canned foods to donate to the Auckland City Mission, some examples included canned spaghetti, canned soups, canned fruits and vegetables etc. The can collection ran for three weeks from Week 3 - Week 5.


Final collection day was Tuesday 30 August. The house who earns the most points by collecting the most cans comes in first place for the event, meaning they receive 50 house points. Congratulations Kaha house for taking out this years points!

The total numbers are in...2757 Cans donated and $1809 collected by/from our students...what an outstanding contribution from the wider Takapuna Grammar School community!


Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen!
