Students and staff at Westmount School Taranaki raised $5,000 through a Givealittle page to assist with the Cyclone Winston Relief Fund. Westmount teachers Mr Lal and Mr Kumar both come from the Fijian village of Tavua on the island of Viti Levu and the money raised is to support the recovery efforts at Tavua College and Tavua Primary School.
Earlier in the year Westmount School and Inglewood Rotary combined to ship 23 school desks and 22 cartons of school books to the Fijian island of Taveuni, where the Rotary Club of Taveuni Island received the desks and books for placement into schools there.
