The raffle supports local charity, “STEMM”:-

“It takes a village to raise a child”
This old African proverb provides a good basis for measuring the high levels of success of Burnside High School’s STEMM program.

The Supporting Teenagers with Education, Mothering and Mentoring programme is the first of its kind in Queensland. Development of a unique, stand-alone curriculum enables pregnant girls and young mothers to be supported in achieving their educational goals.
