By LEE-ANNE EDWARDS Ten New Zealand schools have raised a massive $63,077.90 for this year s 40 Hour Famine. Last Thursday, the 10 top fundraising schools were recognised for their efforts with the World Vision Intermediate Rewards Programme at Moera Community Hall. Games, quizzes and talks from youth ambassadors made a fun day for youngsters, but the underlying message was always there: everyone can do their bit to help others. Hutt schools invited included Hutt Intermediate, Muritai School, Wellesley College and Maranatha Christian School. Hutt Intermediate raised $18,698.50 on their own this year, said World Vision Schools relationship co-ordinator Chris Jupp. Over the last five years these 10 schools have raised an impressive $217,177.35 for World Vision through the 40 Hour Famine. The rewards programme not only provides an enjoyable way to thank the students involved, but is a chance for them to learn more about global issues and how they can take action within their schools and community, he said. This year s famine funds will be making a world of difference to the people of East Timor, where hunger is worse than most of Africa. In fact, almost half the children under five are malnourished. That message and other everyday hardships were brought home to the pupils dur- ing the Poverty Simulation Game, where teams were given a series of envelopes, and had to barter, trade and collect a number of products to win. There were all sorts of dilem- mas and setbacks. For example, the Muritai School team, and others, lost one of their crew when their characters became hospital- bound for the final part of the game. Asked why she was confined to the hospital block, Rose Scott- Billing replied: I ve got HIV.
