Hot Chocolate Day appeals to the taste of Corpus Christi students

It’s become an annual winter tradition at Corpus Christi Primary School, Waratah – the Hot Chocolate Day!

The school’s extremely active and engaged Mini Vinnies group conducts a ‘Raid your Wardrobe’ campaign where students are asked to donate a bag of clothing that they or their family members can pass on to those in need.

The generosity of the school community, whatever the appeal, is always overwhelming and is matched by the dedication of the Mini Vinnies group.

The mug of hot chocolate and marshmallows, donated by the Mini Vinnies group, is a fitting reward for the students’ generosity. This year two official tasters advised on how much chocolate powder was required per cup to obtain the desired taste. All dietary requirements were covered – gluten free marshmallows, soy milk, low fat, full cream − whatever your needs!

However, the real success of the day was filling the SVdP truck for those most in need in the community.
