The Year 11s chose a standard this year that worked alongside an organisation.  Dress a Girl Around the World is a Campaign under Hope Women International bringing dignity to women around the world since 2006.

These girls live in areas where they are easy targets for trafficking and some girls in some of these countries are considered 'less than human' just by virtue of their sex, and they have no standing in their societies.  

A number of our students dresses will go to some of the poorest-of-the-poor, who also deserve nice things with good workmanship, not just leftovers or hand-me-downs.

Our Sacred Heart students made dresses that will be distributed this year along with garments from other Hawke’s Bay schools to make a collective collaborative donation.
