Student Daniel T was a recent donor
Beaconhills College students and staff have saved nearly 7000 lives through blood donations to the Red Cross mobile Blood Bank since 1997.
The Blood Bank recently recognised the College’s community service contribution when it made its last visits to the Pakenham and Berwick Campuses.
The Red Cross has now streamlined its collection practices to enable more appointment times by scheduling longer visits at other locations.
The College’s Blood Bank co-ordinator John Waterhouse said the school should be proud of its donation history.
He said a total of 1200 students and staff had donated blood, with many repeat donors. That equated to 2300 units of blood, representing nearly 7000 lives saved.
Student ambassadors worked each year to help recruit other donors and promote the Blood Bank
visits in the school.
“It has been a wonderful way to enlist young people in the program in the hope they will become lifelong donors,” Mr Waterhouse said.
He said the College would continue to appoint ambassadors to promote the program and send small groups of donors off-campus to take part in the mobile Blood Bank’s community visits.
