In 2017, St Cuthbert’s College, the Rotary Club of Newmarket and Habitat for Humanity will partner together to build a house for a family in housing need.
The build will start in early April, 2017 and will take 13 days to build a 3 bedroom house to a closed state when it will be transported off the build site in Newmarket, to a section in Northland. The aim of the build is to involve the wider community of all the partners and to engage local businesses, companies and individuals in and around Newmarket to contribute materials, services, funds and time to the build.
Conrad LaPointe from Habitat for Humanity announced the build at Monday’s assembly and presented Year 9 student, Jordan Fenning with a token of thanks as the winner of the ‘Name the Build’ competition. Jordan has helped St Cuthbert’s put a stamp of ownership on the project by coming up with a name – Helping Hands Build. St Cuthbert’s students are currently working on the logo.
