The devastation of the Asian tsunami has unleashed a surge of philanthropy in schools: NSW students and teachers have raised $1 million in the past eight weeks.
About 80 schools have formed partnerships with Sri Lankan schools and are sending money, books, sporting equipment and volunteers. Since last month lessons in NSW have been structured around the disaster and principals say most fund-raising has been led by students. More than $46,000 was raised in five weeks by two schools - Epping Boys High and Cheltenham Girls - which competed against each other for dollars."
