Ruby reaches new heights for a worthy cause

issue0316-ruby-sutherlandRuby Sutherland (Year 10) is to be congratulated for her courageous participation in the ‘Krazy Kosci Klimb’ charity walk. Ten teams of intrepid hikers set out on Saturday 20 February to scale Mt Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest mountain. Each team included young people affected by Cerebral Palsy. Ruby worked tirelessly in the lead up to the walk. She personally raised over $10,000 for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance. 

Ruby was accompanied by four mentors from ING, a friend from Nashville Tennessee, her Mother Meg as well as her two History teachers Miss Mella and Ms Osborn. The team worked together to help Ruby navigate the 20 km hike over rocky ground. Ruby’s determination and tenacity was a great inspiration to all involved and Year 10 is very proud of her efforts.
