Towards the end of term, Camberwell Grammar hosted the first lunchtime fete for The Opportunity Challenge. Over Term 2, Year 8 students from Camberwell Grammar, Fintona, Camberwell Girls Grammar, and Canterbury Girls Secondary College have been working together to create micro businesses to raise funds for Opportunity International Australia, a global microfinance organisation working with developing countries.⠀

The Camberwell Grammar fete saw several creative initiatives launched over lunchtime in the Middle School Atrium and enjoyed by Middle and Senior School staff and students. There were some fun carnival-style games, a variety of food stalls, a sausage sizzle, and delicious treats up for grabs. During the Challenge, students developed their entrepreneurial skills, had fun, and raised money for a good cause. 

The Camberwell Grammar fete raised over $1,500 for Opportunity International Australia, enabling them to provide small loans to families living in poverty.
