'For a good cause'
The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
This year The King’s School has the pleasure in raising funds for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, the largest paediatric centre in NSW, is world-renowned for its high quality, specialised treatment of sick children. Part of the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, it provides specialist care for children from around Australia and across the Pacific Rim as well as community education, advocacy for improved child health and ground-breaking research into childhood illnesses, all in a positive, caring and healing environment. Founded in 1880, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead is a public hospital and registered charity, with 3,000 staff across 150 departments looking after 860,000 sick children and their families each year. This includes 29,000 inpatient admissions, 49,000 emergency department presentations and more than 812,000 outpatient visits. An artwork by leading Australian artist John Boker will be auctioned at the Art Show opening event, with all funds raised from the sale of this art work being donated to this worthy cause.
