Mr Mark Hoppe – Dixon Housemaster
Dixon House is embarking on an ambitious service learning campaign this term. In conjunction with local charities “RizeUp” and “Act for Kids”, Dixon is looking to generate a “tonne of LOVE” through several initiatives during Term 4. Our goal is literally that, gift 1000kg of supplies to these incredibly deserving charities on the eve of the Christmas holidays. How do we intend to do this? With your support!
Dixon’s BackPack of Hope project
Mirroring the success of recent year’s work with the Shoebox Appeal, this year creating a BackPack of Hope is our first project. These backpacks will be used to support local young people facing the challenges of emergency relocation or local families enduring extreme hardship. Please use the flyer on PrepBook to make the experience of packing a BackPack of Hope a family tradition in your home. Don’t have a spare backpack at home? No problem, a recyclable shopping bag is just as good and we can source a backpack before delivering to our charities.
Crazy Sock Day – Friday 1 November
In lieu of a free dress day, Dixon hopes that you might like to support a new initiative, “Crazy Sock Day” on Friday 1 November. Normal day uniform should be worn with the only change being the opportunity to show your sporting passion, your creativity or your sense of humour by wearing socks of your choice. The crazier, the better! A gold coin donation will be requested and funds will go towards purchasing games and toys to brighten the lives of young Gold Coasters doing it tough. Prizes will be awarded on assemblies for incredible commitment and creativity on this day!
