Moorefield Girls High School students have thought outside the box to raise money for a good cause – turning to nearby construction workers for their support.

Jeans for Genes Day was held at the start of the month to raise funds for the Children’s Medical Research Institute. The campaign generally sees supporters pull on plenty of denim while raising money for research.

Moorefield Girls High School students managed to raise over $1500.

Students from the school in Kogarah asked Brookfield Multiplex for their support – a big construction company currently working on the nearby St George Hospital upgrades and St Patrick’s Green retirement facility.

Some of the students visited the work sites, on the morning of the campaign, and collected over $1000 from generous construction workers.

“It was really nice to know that all the students [and workers] were supportive of the event and we were able to raise so much money for a much needed cause," Year 7 student Elizabeth Kefallinos said.

Moorefield Girls High School will celebrate its 60th anniversary next month.
