Last week at the St Joseph's Football & Netball Club 'Club 32' luncheon, Paul Hood presented a cheque for $5,000 to Tony Paatsch on behalf of the Michael Carmody Foundation.

Money raised by the Michael Carmody Foundation supports bursaries and students from three schools Michael was involved with.

Nazareth Primary School Grovedale, Simmonds College Melbourne and St Joseph's College. 

The Michael Carmody Foundation was established in 2008 in memory of Michael. He was a friend, son, brother, partner and teacher to many different people in the community. He was killed on 22 December 2007 when camping at Lake Eildon where he was struck by a falling tree. Through this foundation, his memory will be kept alive with all profits being used to give educational opportunities to those deemed to be worthy of receiving help. As he was a teacher and lived to help others, his foundation continues on his work.
