Trinity News : August 2012
TRINITY NEWS 17 As part of our Easter celebrations, a bevy of beautiful bun-butterers from the Summer Hill Auxiliary spent a hectic time buttering what seemed to be billions of buns, but all was accomplished most expeditiously, and through the excellent organisation of the Houses, the hot cross buns were delivered to the lads, who consumed them with great enthusiastic rapidity! The Auxiliary also provided buns for the Preparatory and Junior Schools, and all the Staff. Thank you, ladies! | Ron Ogier left to right: Judith Stothard (Lee 9Du), Megan Dunn (John 7La), Voula Amditis (Alex 11Ar), Jo Coble (Angus 12Ho, Oliver 11Ho), Alex Austin (Sam 7Hi), Nancy Andreatta (Alexander 8Du, Joshua 5), Jennifer Ellis (Jordan 12Mu, Riley 9Mu), Cathy Clark (Jonah Yr 4, Jamieson 12 Du), Kylie Mitchell (Joshua 7Yo) On Tuesday, 15th of May, Dulwich House, for the fourth year in a row ,helped raise funds for The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, which supports sufferers from Type 1 Diabetes. Type 1 diabetes usually develops in young children and is characterised by the failure of the pancreatic function resulting in no insulin production by the pancreas. Insulin is a hormone that is essential for life. Its main function is to move the sugar from the blood stream into the tissues for energy requirements. In Type 1 the pancreases fails to produce insulin, hence there is excess sugar in the blood stream. The main treatment for this is external replacement of the body’s insulin by insulin injections. However, it is very hard for humans to accurately estimate the correct dose and adjust the sugar levels as quickly and effectively as the human pancreas does. It is very common for Type 1 diabetics to experience of hypoglycaemia - low blood sugar due to extra insulin intake. If this is not corrected and acted upon quickly, it can cause coma and consequently death. The main treatment is a quick sugar intake, by consumption of a sweet such as Jelly Babies. This is why Dulwich House support JDRF in selling Jelly Babies. This year Dulwich House raised approximately $1000 for JDRF, and on behalf of Dulwich House I would like to thank the School for their contribution to this worthy cause.
