Students from OneSchool Global New Zealand schools have raised thousands of dollars to support our national children’s hospital, Starship.

Student Leadership Teams at each NZ campus led fundraising efforts which included morning teas, lunches, gold coin donations and coin trails, raising more than $4,500 for Starship.

Recognising the combined effort, students at OneSchool Global’s Hamilton campus presented Starship’s Philanthropy Manager, Pip Eriksson, with a giant novelty cheque.

“It is amazing that OneSchool Global students raised $4,500 for Starship,” Ms Eriksson said.

“The money raised will go on to help make a big difference to the lives of Starship’s children.”

Hamilton campus Principal, Krissy Heeps, spoke for all OSG campuses when she said they were truly delighted to be able to lend a hand to Starship and the sick kids they help all over New Zealand.

“It is fantastic that Starship was able to visit our campus and give us an insight into the wonderful work being done around the country,” Ms Heeps said.

“It was truly inspiring to hear about the extraordinary number of children who are helped by Starship, and we are so pleased to be able to support such an amazing organisation.”

Starship receives more 140,000 patient visits each year, including via a network of about 1,000 outreach clinics where Starship clinicians offer specialist consultation and support. Since 1992 the Starship Foundation has invested more than $150 million into Starship Child Health. It hopes to generate $20 million a year for Starship by 2023. The Starship’s National Air Ambulance Service brings children from all over New Zealand to Starship for life-saving care, latest advances in new technology and medical equipment, boosted family support and specialist staff training.
