Drop a present into our office and we’ll make sure it gets to a deserving

Start giving from Thursday, December 1, 2016.
THIS Christmas, Ray White will continue
its popular tradition of giving with the return
of a little Ray of giving.
The inspiring Christmas campaign will see
Ray White Phillip Island partner with St Vin-
cent de Paul to help disadvantaged children
who may need a little extra light in their fes-
The Ray White team have approached
some corporate support this year with Phil-
lip Island Nature Parks and Westernport Wa-
ter joining the cause to help spread the news
to as many people as possible.
Ray White is also calling on the local com-
munity to embrace the giving season and dig
deep for children who need it most.
“This is the fourth year that we’ve run a lit-
tle ray of giving and we want 2016 to be our
biggest year yet. When you see our Christ-
mas tree go up, we urge everyone who is able
to bring in a gift in for those families who
are less fortunate,” said principal, Kristien
The gift drive is a way to help put a smile
on the face of children and families who may
need some extra cheer at this time of year.
“All you need to do is wrap up your pres-
ent and drop it under the tree in our office
reception. The gifts collected at both Phillip
Island Nature Parks and Westernport Water
will be brought back to our office ready for
the team at St Vincent de Paul, ” s aid Juliana
Those who wish to donate a gift just need
to inform the Ray White team if the gift is for
a boy or girl, and nominate an age group.
Ray White Phillip Island is located at 56 -
58 Thompson Avenue, Cowes and will have
their special giving tree in their front recep-
They will be collecting gifts from December
“ It’s a really simple way to put a smile on
the face of a young child who might other-
wise go without this Christmas, ” said Juli-
ana, adding that just a small gift can make
the biggest difference to families who are
struggling at an expensive time of year.
Shining a ray of light this festive season
Wardy’s Christmas Giving Tree
Kind hearted retired teacher John Ward and students Kristos Kossena, Hunter van der
Zwet, Maddison Lethbridge and Saffi Campbell-Walker can’t wait for the Newhaven College’s
Christmas tree to be surrounded by gifts. The gifts will be distributed by the Wonthaggi Sal-
vation Army to local families in need this Christmas.
NOW in its 17th year, ‘Wardy’s Christmas Tree’
is a Newhaven College giving tradition that was
started by kind hearted teacher, John Ward.
Although retiring at the end of 2015, after a 47-
year teaching career, the last 18 of which were at
Newhaven College, John holds true to his own
wise advice that he always gave to students: “You
should not go through life with a catcher’s mitt
on each hand. You need one hand free so that
you are able to throw something back to others.”
Each year John is overwhelmed by the gener-
osity of families who place gifts under the tree.
“When I arrived at Newhaven College I was
amazed at how many families were in need,” he
“It reminded me of my own childhood when
Christmas could be a tough time, so I decided to
do something to help.
“It brings me so much joy to deliver the gifts
to the Salvation Army in Wonthaggi and to think
of all the local children who will have a smile on
their face on Christmas Day.”
The number of families donating gifts increas-
es each year and members of the public also
come in to place gifts under the tree.
Each Newhaven College campus has its own
tree and the students love checking the presents
to see what has been donated.
“Learning about the giving tree encourages our
students to think of others”, John said.
“It is a living example of our College values of
Respect, Empathy and Responsibility that they
can relate to.”
John invites you to drop in to Newhaven Col-
lege to ‘throw something back to others’ this
The trees will be in place until early December
at both the Phillip Island Road and Boys Home
