The Beaconhills Home Challenge is the gift that keeps on giving during lockdown. And now Year 6 Pakenham Campus student Zoe Sharpe is the latest to jump on board, with the aim of donating 20 handmade beanies to children in the cancer ward at Monash Children’s Hospital.

Zoe has already made her first beanies and scarf – using Loopz yarn – while her grandmother also plans to donate home knitted tiny beanies and cardigans for premature babies in the neonatal ward.

Zoe said she read about the ‘Being Kind’ initiative – part of the Beaconhills Home Challenge – in the College Middle School bulletin.

“I wanted to help the children who had just gone through a massive thing in their life,” Zoe said. “I don’t think I would be able to even imagine what they have gone through, so I wanted to help them get better, or even put a smile on some of their faces.”

Beaconhills students are taking part of a variety of activities in the Home Challenge, from creating art to recording km in a ‘Run Around Australia’.
