The Masons have generously donated $3700 to support Beaconhills’ East Timor School building project.

The recent cheque presentation at the Berwick Campus followed a visit by the campus’ Senior Vocal Ensemble to Keysborough’s South Eastern Masonic Centre in July, where they sang at the dinner.

The Companions donated $947 on the night, with further donations later gathered from the Burgundy Ladies (partners of the Companions) and the Bairnsdale Chapter, along with a $2000 donation from the Victorian Freemasons Charitable Foundation.

Mason leaders Peter Crick and his wife Deidre presented the cheque to Headmaster Tony Sheumack and thanked the choir for its performance in July.

“One of the choir spoke eloquently about the East Timor Friendship School project and how they were working towards the building of two school rooms with toilets and the supply of good quality water for the school, “ Mr Crick said.

He said the Masons were proud to present a cheque for $3700 to Beaconhills to support the project.

“We thank your students for being with us that evening and wish your College all the best in their endeavours with this most important project.”
