Calendar for Timor
Cassidy White is heading to Timor-Leste with the Damascus College Immersion in June 2017. She has created a calendar to support the fundraising for the people of Ainaro in Timor-Leste. Ainaro is Ballarat’s sister city in the mountains of Timor-Leste and the Immersion has been an annual event for seven years. Year 11 students visit the Catholic Secondary School, Santa Maria, and work with the students on developing English language skills.After applying for the Immersion, Cassidy brainstormed ideas with her family for creative fundraising possibilities. In association with Just Copiers, her father’s employer, the calendar came into being. There were photos to be sorted, design issues to be negotiated, but the result is extraordinary.
