Frayne ‘Noodle Palace’ Raises Funds for Project Compassion

Students from the Senior School at Ursula Frayne Catholic College raised funds for Project Compassion this year by holding their very own ‘Noodle Palace’ pop-up restaurant.

The Siena One Cluster Form class helped to prepare and sell noodles, drinks and sweets during their lunch break on Thursday 15 March.


The Noodle Palace idea was chosen to raise funds because students identified how many of their friends are in love with noodles, especially the extra spicy flavours.

Decorations adorned the hallway leading to the palace outside the College’s industry grade kitchen area, where serving tables had lots of different flavoured noodles to choose from.


On the day, enthusiastic students flooded the stairwell to get up to the palace and demand was much larger than the supply.

Ms Jo Searson, Coordinator of Home Economics, said the best thing about this initiative was “having such an enthusiastic crowd of supporters from across the campus”.

Thanks go to all students involved in the planning, preparation and serving on the day, as well as the College community who rallied behind the cause.

$709.20 was raised for Project Compassion for this one College activity.
