SOME fly, others use x-ray vision or deploy sticky spider web in their quest to help, but these Griffith High School superheroes have used their fundraising powers to make a difference.
In between studying for their upcoming HSC exams, the small yet dedicated group of year 12 students have raised $7600.
Dressed as their favourite crime fighters they made a colourful spectacle when they set off on Wednesday from the school armed with small plastic buckets on their final fund-raising effort, the Superhero Street Walk.
Co-year 12 adviser Nikki Hardie said the group of 30 students had done the school proud.
“This is the most money we’ve had raised for years,” she said.
“The fact that they are such a small group makes it even more incredible. The whole school is proud of their efforts.”
The students will hand over the money raised to Griffith Can Assist, Griffith Suicide Prevention, Ningana Enterprises and Griffith Base Hospital to use for asthma management equipment during their graduation assembly today, with representatives on hand to accept the donation.
Griffith High School captain Kate Dreyer said they were happy to be able to give back to the school and wider community.
“We have really enjoyed being able to make a difference,” she said.
“We’ve been able to reach and exceed our initial goal of $5000, which is amazing. We are only a small group but we’ve all worked together well.”
